Imaging the Invisible

Project: Research

Project Description

This Project seeks to develop imaging technology to see and quantify objects that are normally invisible with Xrays. An X-ray imaging system will be developed that is expected to provide orders of magnitude greater sensitivity to subtle changes in material composition than conventional radiography. Quantitative image analysis tools are to be devised for isolating specific materials of interest from complex multi-material samples, including low density components that often go undetected. Industries that could benefit significantly from this technology include airport security, the mining sector, agriculture, manufacturing quality control, and biomedical researchers studying anatomical form and function.
