MA3Bi2I9 Single-Crystal Enables X-ray Detection Down to Nanograys/s
Posted: 2020-6-1Sensitive and reliable X-ray detectors are essential for medical radiography, industrial inspection and security screening. Lowering the radiation dose allows reduced health risks and increased frequency and fidelity of diagnostic technologies for earlier detection of disease and its recurrence. Three-dimensional (3D) organic–inorganic hybrid lead halide perovskites are promising for direct X-ray detection – they show improved sensitivity compared to conventional X-ray detectors. However, their high and uns...Read More.

Virtual Image Processing – Paradigm Shift Through Simulation
Posted: 2020-5-27Factories are becoming increasingly automated. Production facilities are becoming more flexible, so that no new plants have to be built when switching to new products. Visual inspection system hardware configuration – the last nail preventing the inspection systems to be truly purpose-flexible and thus ready for the implementation as a part of Industry 4.0 process chain. Production lines are more and more versatile, and products are changing rapidly, confronting inspection systems with more complex surfaces...Read More.
