BL-14C for X-ray imaging and multi-purpose experiments
Contact person: Kazuyuki HYODO
We have rearranged BL-14C at the PF experimental hall,
where one can get a vertically polarized synchrotron radiation beam, to
investigate X-ray phase-contrast imaging,
such as X-ray phase-contrast CT using an X-ray interferometer,
X-ray diffraction-enhanced imaging (DEI), DEI-CT and X-ray dark field imaging (DFI).
BL-14C1, which was dedicated to X-ray imaging, and BL-14C2,
which was dedicated to X-ray diffraction experiments under high pressure and temperature,
were rearranged to a large one experimental hutch, BL-14C,
for X-ray imaging and other experiments using the white X-rays or the monochromatic X-rays.
A large X-ray interferometer for X-ray phase-contrast CT was installed at the back of BL-14C hutch.
