Applications

Non-Destructive Testing

Tough, light and reliable materials are the key to many developments. Identification of defects, impurities or cracks in these materials is often crucial. X-ray imaging is a tool that has been used for these purposes for a long time. However, standard imaging technologies are often tuned for metals. Therefore, the traditional X-ray imaging systems fail in case of modern light materials such as composites. Our novel inspection technologies and pho...

Small Animal Spectral Imaging

Cancer research, bio-mechanics, and drug testing are just a few examples of where X-ray imaging contributes to research in biology and medicine. New photon counting detectors represent a serious advancement for these applications, compared to previously used synchrotrons. The energy sensitivity of modern cameras opens better possibilities to identify individual types of tissue. That has important consequences in various industries, for example ca...

Mining and geology

Resources mined from Earth fuel our society. However, efficient, eco-friendly mining is a must if we want to keep the economy and society sustainable. Cheap, fast exploration for mineral resources is required. Geology is a tool to understand our planet and also to help find resources still undiscovered. ...

Authentication of art

Study and characterization of art pieces, namely paintings, using X-ray imaging is becoming an increasingly important area. It is useful for galleries, museums and collectors to improve conservation and preservation methods. It is important for art buyers to reliably authenticate the works. The advanced X-ray imaging techniques provide detailed data for insurance companies to assess risks involved in transportation of art.

X-ray diffraction

X-ray diffraction is analytical method based on inspection of crystalline structure of samples used in applications, such as metallurgy, mineralogy, powders, pigments, polymers, surface layers and strain mapping. The traditional XRD uses monochromatic X-rays which make the apparatus large and slow. ADVACAM’s spectral camera based on Timepix3 chip with high resolution makes it fast and compact. ...

Other applications

ADVACAM offers cameras and solutions for multiple other application such as electron microscopy, crystallography, neutron imaging, charged particle tracking and dosimetry for cancer therapy. In addition, number of cameras are being used in the basic research, such as at CERN's LHC accelerator, and for education of radiation and its properties in schools and universities. ...
