FIP Seminar: Co-hosted with ECE "X-ray Diffraction Tomography: Methods and Applications"
Conventional X-ray computed tomography (CT) only reconstructs the attenuation map. X-ray diffraction tomography (XDT) probes the angular-dependent scattering profiles of the three-dimensional (3D) object, achieving a high structural specificity among materials with similar electron density. However, due to the low level of interaction of coherent scattering, the practical imaging application using x-ray diffraction signature posed challenges in acquisition speed, algorithm efficiency, and reconstruction accuracy. In this talk, we will discuss the efforts in accelerating the image acquisition speed while maintaining object-specific information from the Optical Imaging System Lab at the University of Central Florida. Specifically, the talk will be focus on maximize the system detection efficiency and improve the classification/reconstruction performance for low photon detection level to meet the need of practical detection
