High-Speed X-Ray Imaging
RMD has pioneered high-speed X-ray imaging technology and has designed and delivered complete systems high-resolution for applications ranging from time-resolved studies at synchrotron sources to ballistic impact analysis and Non-Destructive Evaluation (NDE) or Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) of machinery during operation.
RMD’s systems provide multiple images over a wide range of X-ray energies and at speeds ranging from tens of frames per second (FPS) to over 1 million FPS. Depending on the resolution requirement, RMD can engineer the imager to provide relatively smaller, 2.5 x 2.5 cm2, to a very large, 1m x 1m, active area.
Key Technology Enablers
1. HSSTM Scintillation Screens For High-Speed Imaging
RMD’s 18″ x 18″ HSSTM sctintillation screens offer fast and bright, afterglow-free emission, high X-ray absorption and high spatial resolution. for ultra-fast imaging.
2. Custom X-ray Sources for High-Speed Imaging
Novel X-ray sources designed for your specific application, including battery operated multiple pulse sources that can generate 50ns X-ray bursts.
3. Camera Optics For Efficient Light Collection
