See the invisible and make it usable

Already in 1940, Superman was flying around looking through buildings (and clothing) with his X-ray vision. How does he do it? In this talk, we let you in on his secrets and show how scientists are utilizing the same technique in research into green technology for saving the planet.

Most people have encountered x-ray imaging many times in their lives – at the dentist’s, in the hospital or in the airport security check. But did you know that computed tomography (CT) is also an important research tool?

Windmills, solar cells and batteries are examples of technologies for harvesting and storing energy that are an important part of the green transition. In the strive towards a fossil free world, further research and development of such technologies is crucial. In this lecture, we talk about how CT allows us to see the smallest details of the structure of the materials used, and how this can help us improving the devices and increase their efficiency.

We take you through the entire workflow of x-ray CT. We explain how an image can be formed using x-rays, how we can reconstruct a 3D image and how the images are analyzed.

Quiz/questions during and/or after the lecture.

We are 5 PhD students at DTU and CTH (Chalmers) and ETH Zürich that are part of the EU Innovative training Network MUMMERING. We are all working with different aspects of the x-ray tomography technology. I not all of us are able to travel to the venue (due to covid-19 restrictions), we will try to have a mixed live/online lecture where two students present their part via Skype while the other three are present the class room.

The students are:
Elise Otterlei Brenne, Azat Slyamov, Jakeoung Koo, Robert Auenhammer, Jisoo Kim
