ABOUT IMAGING

The Imaging thematic covers acquisition, processing and applications in imaging that are relevant to systems using synchrotrons and/or neutron sources. We consider all possible length scales and subjects accessible with modern and future methods. The focus is on finding new image reconstruction and/or analysis techniques that can help to extract meaningful information from x-ray/neutron imaging data and on connecting different methodologies and competences in order to shed new light on challenges in imaging of different subject matters.

CORE GROUP

WORKING GROUPS

IMAGING WG 1

Working group on x-ray fluorescence tecHniques

X-ray fluorescence imaging tehcniques are a versatile toolbox for the characterisation of chemical species in a wide range of samples sizes and types relevant to many subjects. Examples of these include: Biology, Geology, Life Sciences, Materials Science, Nanoscience & Soft Matter. A major aim of the working group is to kickstart initiatives helping and bringing together new user communities for these techniques.

IMAGING WG 2

Working group on GeoArchaeology

Geological and Archaeological Working Group for the development of imaging using synchrotrons and neutron sources. The new large infrastructures at LU (MAXIV and ESS) will play an important role to merge interests across faculties and move research forward. Both geology and archaeology are strongly favoured by this. To achieve this, researchers in archaeology in particular need to gain knowledge about how both synchrotron and neutron sources can be used. This working group intends to organise at least five events, one kick-off conference and 4 workshops, as well as specific campaigns for beam time.
