X-ray Phase imaging System

An X-ray phase tomography system based on the use of a high-sensitivity compact wavefront sensor. Expected characteristics and advantages of such a system are the following:

– energy range:  5-25 keV,

– compacity when compared to propagation-based methods,

– absolute phase measurement,

– compatibility with laboratory X-ray sources.

As a first proof-of-concept, the figure displays our first demonstrator of an X-ray wavefront sensor dedicated to phase imaging.
