Title: Development of the Portable Synchrotron MIRRORCLE-CV for High Precision Non-Destructive Testing

Abstract

We started the development of the portable synchrotron MIRRORCLE-CV series, which provides a high quality x-ray beam for high precision non-destructive testing (NDT). Computer simulations for the magnetic field design and electron dynamics reveal that the outer diameter of the synchrotron magnet can be as small as 30 cm. This synchrotron size approaches that of a conventional x-ray tube.

  • We are developing the portable synchrotron MIRRORCLE-CV series, which provides a high quality x-ray beam for high precision non-destructive testing (NDT). Computer simulations for the magnetic field design and electron dynamics reveal that the outer diameter of the synchrotron magnet can be as small as 30 cm. This synchrotron size approaches that of a conventional x-ray tube.
  • The portable synchrotron MERRORCLE-6X is a novel x-ray source suitable for hard x-ray imaging. Highly brilliant x-rays are generated by MIRRORCLE-6X in the shape of cone from a source with micron size. We obtained images with high magnification and high resolution by these x-rays, and found that they can be utilized for medical imaging. Recently, we started to perform ideal 3-dimentional computed tomography (3D-CT) based on the Feldkamp algorithm, which is the most popular reconstruction algorithm for a cone beam CT, using a flat panel detector. Therefore, we developed a magnified 3D-CT system of high quality using MIRRORCLE-6X.
  • The design and implementation of a compact and portable sample alignment system suitable for use at both synchrotron and free-electron laser (FEL) sources and its performance are described. The system provides the ability to quickly and reliably deliver large numbers of samples using the minimum amount of sample possible, through positioning of fixed target arrays into the X-ray beam. The combination of high-precision stages, high-quality sample viewing, a fast controller and a software layer overcome many of the challenges associated with sample alignment. A straightforward interface that minimizes setup and sample changeover time as well as simplifying communication with themore » stages during the experiment is also described, together with an intuitive naming convention for defining, tracking and locating sample positions. Lastly, the setup allows the precise delivery of samples in predefined locations to a specific position in space and time, reliably and simply.« less
  • MIRRORCLE is a tabletop/portable synchrotron light source. It generates 10 mW order far infrared, watt order EUV/soft X-ray, and brilliant hard X-rays in 10 to 1000 keV range. MIRRORCLE is also a synchrotron that can generate directly monochromatic X-ray beam. MIRRORCLE is a medical diagnostics system similar to a X-ray tube radiology, but is very different in its fine spatial resolution and coherence of X-ray. A difference in the material density instead of in the atomic number is distinguished by the phase contrast method, due to its highly coherent beam. MIRRORCLE is a non-destructive testing system for more than 10cmmore » thick heavy constructions with 10-{mu}m order fine spatial resolution. MIRRORCLE is an EUV lithography source, a laboratory size protein crystallography system, as well as a X-ray microscope. We discuss advanced features of this multi-functional light source MIRRORCLE.« less
  • We report that the magnified imaging using the portable synchrotron named MIRRORCLE has unique advantages for non-destructive inspection (NDI) of some products. This machine is a high energy x-ray source which can have a micron-sized point source, which is different from the conventional synchrotron, linear accelerator and the x-ray tube. The images produced with micron-sized point source and wide spectrum can display in detail the industrial products containing several materials in detail. The obtained x-ray images characterization is expected to provide a new tool for NDI of industrial products.
