Alan Turing Building, Frank Adams 2 Prof Bill Lionheart "Histotomography" Abstract: In many tomographic imaging problems the data consists of integrals along lines or curves. Increasingly we are seeing "rich tomography" problems where the quantity imaged is higher dimensional than a scalar per voxel, including vectors tensors and functions. The data can also be higher dimensional and in many cases consists of a one or two dimensional spectrum for each ray. In many such cases the data contains not just integrals along rays but the distribution of values along the ray. If this is discretized into bins we can think of this as a histogram. In this talk we introduce the concept of "histotomography". For scalar problems with histogram data this holds the possibility of reconstruction with fewer rays. In vector and tensor problems it holds the promise of reconstruction of images that are in the null space of related integral transforms. We will illustrate the talk with examples from scalar spectral attenuation tomography and tensor tomography methods for strain using neutrons, electrons and x-rays.

5 March 2018 and lasts for nine weeks: https://www.edx.org/course/synchrotrons-and-x-ray-free-electron-lasers. This now includes a short 'teaser' video, also viewable at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iOk5fgVvqMg The course is aimed at a broad scientific audience from historical-artefact restorators and paleontologists, through biologists, biochemists and chemical engineers, to materials scientists and physicists. It includes the following themes: 1) Interaction of x-rays with matter; 2) The production and physics of synchrotron and XFEL radiation; 3) X-ray optics, beamlines, and instrumentation; 4) X-ray diffraction and scattering; 5) UV and x-ray spectroscopies; 6) X-ray imaging (mainly tomography and lensless imaging/ptychography); and 7) Extra week on phasing techniques in macromolecular crystallography.
