Scientists at MAP have managed to significantly improve the phase-contrast x-ray method by analyzing so-called “speckles”- specific patterns that arise when radiation hits rough surfaces. Reports about this new method are featured in the online science magazines Pro Physik and Medizin Aspekte.
An article on medicalphysicsweb on the research of Prof. Katia Parodi and colleagues on "Ionoacoustics: a new take on range verification" which she recently presented at the ICTR-PHE meeting in Geneva, Switzerland
For the past 40 years, our new Guest Professor, Paul Bolton, has worked in the field of physics. Nowadays, he is still just as excited and there’s not a week in his life where he isn’t learning something new or being intrigued by new ideas. Before arriving in Munich this summer, he spent the past seven years as the Deputy-Director-General of the Kansai Photon Science Institute located in outskirts of Kyoto, Japan.
As a Guest Professor, associated with Professor Katia Parodi's team, he will pass on his knowledge at LMU, initially by offering a new graduate course about the 'integrated laser-driven ion accelerator system (ILDIAS)' and it’s applications.
We interviewed him to learn about his stay in Japan, his plans as a guest professor here in Munich and what he regards as the most fascinating thing about physics.
