Project Description

Joining Dr Blumensath and his team at the University of Southampton’s µ-VIS volumetric imaging centre (, you will be working on the development of world leading x-ray technology. X-ray computed tomography can take volumetric images of the inside of a patient or an object. However, taking such an image using x-rays is a slow process, which means that it is difficult to study processes that change with time. In order to image very fast phenomena, novel x-ray imaging systems need to be developed. In this project, you will use computer simulations to investigate a system that modulates the x-ray radiation intensity. Your task will be to develop advanced algorithms that will be able to exploit this modulation in order to allow volumetric images to be reconstructed at short timescales. You will have access to high end computing facilities, including the University’s supercomputer cluster and dedicated high specification volumetric image processing facilities. You will be hosted in the Faculty of Engineering’s Signal Processing and Control group and work closely with experts from the µ-VIS x-ray imaging lab. µ-VIS is one of the world’s leading x-ray facilities. It has 6 complementary CT systems and lab members have extensive experience using synchrotron facilities.
