MINIaturitzed coherent soft X-ray source for research and industry

Project description

For more compact, personalised X-ray equipment

X-rays are a penetrating form of high-energy electromagnetic radiation. The ultra-fast pulses from X-ray free-electron lasers can enable imaging of non periodic objects at near-atomic resolution. X-rays are an extremely valuable tool in numerous fields – from advanced physics and chemistry to the pharmaceutical industry. However, to make X-ray technology widely available, it must be cost effective, while the instruments utilised to perform academic and industrial research should be smaller and more personalised. Therefore, the EU-funded miniX project’s aim is to provide cost-efficient miniaturisation of a laser-based soft X-ray source designed for lay user operation.
