One of the first applications of X-ray discovered by Wilhelm Roentgen was the possibility to collect images (later named radiographs) of the inside of objects or parts of a body. This has been used ever since in many different fields, from medicine to material science, from safety to cultural heritage.

There are several techniques that make use of the high penetration of X-rays. With the Empyrean diffractometer and the hybrid pixel detectors PIXcel3D and GaliPIX3D it is possible to perform the following X-ray imaging measurement techniques:

  • Radiography
  • Computed Tomography
  • X-ray Topography
