Maisenbacher (KIT/IAM-WK) presented actual results of VI-NRMM in a talk titled "Grating based Differential Phase Contrast Imaging of an Interpenetrating AlSi12/Al2O3 Metal Matrix Composite".

The half years meeting of the VI-NXMM took place 7.-8.5.2015 in Karlsruhe. Organized by KIT/IAM-WK, 24 members took part, meeting in the attic floor.

At 8. and 9.10.2014 the VI-NXMM met in Hamburg at DESY for the annual meeting. The state of development in

At 4.7.2014 VI-NXMM was evaluated in Berlin in the office of Helmholtz-association. The internationally leading technical state of the optics

At 22.5.2014 a new type of refractive X-ray lenses and its manufacturing process have been applied for patent. These new CRLs (Compound Refractive

With the transfer of the interim report, the virtual institute applied for a one year prolongation of the VI-NXMM. This prolongation would render

KIT and company microworks have been invited to the "1. Siemens Supplier Innovation Day 2014", to present their activities in research and

A first measurement with a stitched G1-grating manufactured at KIT/IMT was carried out at TU Munich. In setups for phase contrast imaging three gratings

“Innovative X-ray Imaging Methods for Materials, Biological and Medical Analysis” is the title of a project proposal for a Marie Sklodowska-Curie

For the first time rolled foil mirror optics have been fabricated by winding a polyimide foil carrying suitable spacers. These optics can be used at synchrotron sources as well as at laboratory sources for illuminating

A new visibility record was achieved with improved sun-ray gratings. Using the same X-ray tube setup at TU Munich as in June, the visibility was increased by about 40%.

A prepared frog has been phase contrast imaged at TUM. The experiment was performed to investigate the possibility to image larger objects using a stitched large area X-ray grating made out of four individual gratings.

At 14.-16.10.2013 PhD-students of VI-NXMM met in Ratzeburg for exchange of ideas and to discuss questions and the state of research with the other students.

A cardiac valve was phase contrast imaged using a setup of two stitched gratings. For the first time a stitched grating was used in

The highest ever measured visibility (image contrast) at an X-ray tube source was now measured with a so called "sun ray"-grating. By using a "sun ray"-grating as

At 7.-11.10.2013 the first autumn school of VI-NXMM together with the HZG-autumn school takes place in Ammersbek.

In a beam time from 8.-12.3.2013 the very first so called refractive Taille-lenses were tested in an X-ray microscope setup. Taille-lenses have apertures

At KIT-IMT a mobile X-ray detector based on a CCD-camera was developed and is in service now. The device has a maximum resolution of 0.8 µm and a field of view of 1.2 mm x 1.8 mm. The detector will be used to align X-ray

At 12.-14.11.2012 PhD-students of VI-NXMM meet in Annweiler am Trifels. Goal of the meeting is to meet the other students in person and

Refractive Rolled X-ray Prism Lenses (RXPLs) are made by rolling a micro structured polyimide foil around a winding core

At 25.10.2011 representatives of all institutions participating in the VI-NXMM met for the kick-off meeting in Karlsruhe. In this first meeting everyone

At 1.10.2011 the Virtual Institute New X-ray analytical Methods in Material science (VI-NXMM) was founded. It will concentrate the competences of eight institutions, active in X-ray imaging. An intensive cooperation will result in
