Jerash Silver Scroll: Computed Tomography Data

Computed Tomography of an Early Islamic Silver Scroll found in Jerash/Jordan by the Danish-German Jerash Northwest Quarter Project (Universities of Aarhus and Münster)

The computed tomography was conducted by the company Vohtec in Garching in February 2015. Vohtec used the Phoenix GE v|tome|x M equipped with a 300 kV microfocus X-ray tube and a 2k imaging detector. The scan was done at an X-ray voltage of 270 kV and a current of 87 μA. The imaging set up produced a magnification of approx. 8,5x with a voxel size of approx. 23 μm. The 3D volume was created on the basis of 1,600 2D X-ray images recorded during the scan as the object was rotated 360° around its main axis.

In addition to the publications mentioned below, the data was recently processed by:
