X-Ray Tomography GroupTOmographic Microscopy and Coherent rAdiology experimenTs
Prof. Stampanoni heads a group of over 20 people, including three staff scientists, two technicians, one controls engineer, and many postdocs and PhD students. The team focuses on the development of tools, both instrumentation and algorithms, for tomographic X-ray imaging, exploiting synchrotron and laboratory sources. The group is engaged in the design and construction of ultra-fast data acquisition systems (stroboscopic coherent X-ray radiology and tomography) to provide dynamic investigation of rapidly evolving systems. The group also intensively develops optimized applications for fast, concurrent post-processing of tomographic data starting from simple normalization corrections to ad-hoc reconstruction and artifact reductions algorithms. Finally, the group investigates, creates and optimizes novel imaging modalities based on the coherent properties of synchrotron radiation and works on the transition of such work to conventional x-ray sources.
Matias Kagias joins the TOMCAT team as PostDocMatias Kagias, will continue his research within the TOMCAT team as a postdoc. He will be working on advanced gratings interferometry applications within the framework of the Eurostar project INFORMAT.
Hector Dejea joined the TOMCAT team as a new PhDHector’s PhD will develop in the context of the Heart Imaging Project, working on cardiac tissue analysis with a focus towards dynamic experiments.
Fei Yang joined the TOMCAT team as a PostDocWith a PhD in materials science imaging applications, Fei will support the team in grating-based experiments both at the beamline and in the lab.
Elena Borisova joined the TOMCAT team as a PostDocWith a PhD in observational astrophysics, Elena has joined the beamline crew to support the team in theoretical aspects related to imaging.
