INspection of Fiber Orientations in Reinforced MATerials

We aim to develop an X-ray module for structural 3D imaging of fibre-reinforced plastic (FRP) components. The module will integrate novel x-ray grating optics - enabling to probe local fibre orientation - with innovative image reconstruction algorithms designed to perform 3D characterization. As the first widely accessible non-destructive setup being able to directly map 3D fibre orientation, INFORMAT will tap into a large and unserved market within the materials science imaging sector.
