I am a PhD student at the Applied physics department, Biological physics and x-ray physics group (BioX). I work with x-ray sources and hard x-ray imaging.
Our x-ray sources have a liquid-metal jet as target material. This enables higher power (shorter exposure times) while maintaining a small x-ray spot size, compared to conventional compact sources.
I use these novel sources for high-resolution absorption and phase-contrast imaging of biological samples, such as, .e.g., mice.
