The present invention relates to improving x-ray phase contrast imaging. The invention discloses a novel grating interferometer for phase contrast imaging with hard x-rays that overcomes limitations in the level of sensitivity by utilizing the advantages of far-field interferometers. The novel design and fabrication process can easily acquire absolute and differential phase images of lightly absorbing samples.
Commercial Applications
  • Clinical diagnostics
  • Research tools
Competitive Advantages
  • More sensitivity
  • Easier to fabricate images
