X-ray Imaging for Life Sciences & Materials
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. Particular emphasis is on the development of (ultra)fast, time-resolved methods, to allow investigation of dynamic processes such as cell growth or materials processing.
The main research activities cover:
- X-ray optics, X-ray Detectors
- Hard X-ray Microscopy
- In vivo, in situ real-time 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
