This group is a cross ICP-departmental unit based on the use of light non-invasive technologies applied to Palaeontology, to explore and quantify inner, usually non-visible, structures.

These techniques include 3D imaging, industrial and medical computed tomography, laser scanning, photogrammetry as well as engineering techniques such as Finite Element Analysis. The facilities of the ICP include an industrial Computed Tomography scanner: with an X-Ray tube of 450 kV, this represents the most powerful research CT system in Spain to scan large samples in high resolution. Other facilities are Next Engine laser scanners as well as powerful workstations with the principal software to analyze and interpret the results. Moreover, the department has a stable collaboration with mechanical engineers of the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC) developing new biomechanical approaches for extinct animals.

Coordinator Dr. Josep Fortuny (ICP)
