Inventors of the world’s brightest microfocus x-ray tube

The MetalJet technology replace the traditional solid anode of x-ray tubes with a jet of liquid metal. Thereby the achievable power-level is no longer limited by when the anode melts. It's already molten!

  • New simple setup for X-ray phase contrast

    X-ray phase-contrast imaging can provide high-quality images of objects with lower radiation dose. But until now these images have been hard to obtain and required special X-ray sources whose properties are typically only found at large particle accelerator facilities. Using a laboratory source with unprecedented brightness, scientists from the Technische Universität München (TUM), the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm (KTH) and University College London (UCL) have demonstrated a new approach to get reliable phase contrast with an extremely simple setup.
