NUCLEAR INSTRUMENTS & METHODS IN PHYSICS RESEARCH SECTION B-BEAM INTERACTIONS WITH MATERIALS AND ATOMS
Abstract: Over the past few years, results from the phase contrast imaging and tomography (PCIT) beamline at the Singapore Synchrotron Light Source (SSLS) have shown that high resolution (about 1μm) 2-dimensional (2D) and 3-dimensional (3D) can be achieved in spite of the large emittance of the Helios 2 storage ring. Using white radiation the photon flux is high enough to perform real time radiology (100ms per frame) at high lateral resolution as well as high-speed 2D imaging and 3D tomography. Refractive edge enhancement was also observed. PCIT is mostly used for materials and process characterization.
