X-ray Imaging & X-ray Diffraction Imaging
X-ray imaging research at IPS encompasses technological, methodological, and experimental aspects of 2D, 3D and 4D mapping of material and biological structures from macroscopic to sub-microscopic length scales. A particular emphasis of research activities is the development of fast, time-resolved methods, which allow dynamic processes such as cell growth or materials processing to be investigated.
The main research activities at IPS cover:
• X-ray optics, X-ray Detectors
• Hard X-ray Microscopy
• 3D imaging
• Spectroscopic Imaging, Phase Imaging, Diffraction Imaging
• Algorithms and Computational Approaches
and their application in the fields of life sciences & materials research:
• 4D imaging of living organisms, hierarchical and correlated imaging of organisms, tissues, cells and structures,
morphological dynamics, mutation etc.
• in-situ & in-operando characterisation of materials for electronics and energy storage, light-weight high-
performance materials, microsystems devices, multi-phase fluidics
