An X-ray Revolution: Changing the game of non-destructing testing

Project: Research

Project Description

This Fellowship aims to revolutionise how we see inside things with X-rays, providing better image quality with higher throughput at lower radiation dose. An X-ray imaging system will be developed that is anticipated to provide orders of magnitude greater sensitivity for detecting low-density objects often invisible with conventional X-ray scanners. Quantitative image analysis tools are to be developed for isolating materials of interest from complex multi-material samples, including the ability to detect individual chemical elements. Significant benefits from these technologies are expected in industries including airport security, mining, agriculture, manufacturing quality control, and in numerous research fields from medicine to geology.
