  • Expert Insights: Gain insights from ESRF experts seasoned professionals on synchrotron light and its applications.
  • Solutions to Challenges: Learn how synchrotron technology, coupled with TEC Eurolab’s advanced materials testing capabilities, can solve specific challenges.
  • Case Study Exploration: Discover a pioneering case study on hybrid metal-composite joints, showcasing the collaborative efforts of the University of Bologna, TEC Eurolab, and ESRF.
  • Technological Impact: Understand the potential of synchrotron light to revolutionize materials engineering and testing.


A technical convention will showcase a case study conducted by the University of Bologna, originating from a collaboration between TEC Eurolab and ESRF, the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility. The case study, titled “Development of Hybrid Metal-Composite Joining Processes and Analysis of the Related Interface,” will be presented by Luca Tomesani and Luca Raimondi from the University of Bologna’s Department of Industrial Engineering.

This case study focuses on the development of a new type of hybrid metal-composite joints aimed at significantly reducing the weight of components. The resulting components necessitate a non-invasive method for evaluating the quality of the interface obtained. Looking forward, the case study aims to use comparative analyses of tomographies obtained through synchrotron light and more conventional techniques to establish evaluation standards for these methodologies.

With a brand-new generation of high-energy synchrotron, the ESRF is the world’s brightest X-ray source and a centre of excellence for fundamental and innovation-driven research in condensed and living matter science. Located in Grenoble, France, the ESRF owes its success to the international cooperation of 21 partner countries, of which 13 are Members and 8 are Associates.

The ESRF offers industry-privileged and practical access to its 44 highly specialised experimental stations, called “beamlines”, in a completely confidential manner. Each beamline is equipped with state-of-the-art instrumentation, which supports a wide range of experimental techniques.

As a result of its properties, synchrotron radiation is used increasingly as a response to industrial challenges related to the life cycle of materials: development, manufacturing, operation, ageing, wear-and-tear, preservation, restoration, recycling, evaluation, and more. Observing, characterising and understanding the structure of matter is at the heart of these challenges for industry.


Our applications cover many fields, including pharmaceuticals and biotechnology, chemistry and catalysis, cosmetics, food products, construction and transport engineering, nanotechnologies, semiconductors, energy, environment, metallurgy and advanced materials.

Beyond Additive is part of “STREAMLINE TOUR – the ESRF meets Industry”, a STREAMLINE project’s flagship initiative, which consists of the promotion and participation of the ESRF business development team in a selection of events across Europe. The main scope of this initiative is to meet industrial partners and offer them the possibility to know the ESRF novel services, tailored to their needs.

Via the Streamline Tour, where the ESRF is present alone or with a selected partner (as Beyond additive, co-organised with TEC EUROLAB), the stakeholders and key players in all the sectors can get more insights about how to benefit the most from unique capabilities offered by the ESRF-EBS.
