SIS has the R&D resources to provide customized, unique solutions to x-ray research requirements. For example, we have developed a cost effective and high power pulsed x-ray imaging system for research into sub-millisecond events using real-time radiography.

This system is installed in University College of London (UCL), Dept. of Chemical Engineering’s x-ray facility and is being used to research the dynamic behaviour of fluidised beds. The new system offers considerable benefits over previously available equipment. The capability to image at 72 frames per second and with 200μs pulse widths is revealing detail not previously visible.
