Accepted 17 May 2016

Development of a single-cell X-ray fluorescence flow cytometer

An X-ray fluorescence flow cytometer capable of performing single-cell metal analysis is described and developed. This device is capable of detecting mM to µM concentrations from sample volumes as small as ∼50 fL.

Synchrotron X-ray CT characterization of titanium parts fabricated by additive manufacturing. Part II. Defects

Synchrotron X-ray tomography has been applied to the study of defects within three-dimensional printed titanium parts. This has revealed a number of defects which may not otherwise have been seen, the location and nature of which can contribute to understanding the interplay between design and manufacturing strategy.

Accepted 16 May 2016

X-ray nanotomography and focused-ion-beam sectioning for qu­antitative three-dimensional analysis of nanocomposites

The X-ray nanotomography technique was compared with scanning electron microscopy for quantitative three-dimensional analysis of nanocomposite particles.

Accepted 16 May 2016

Optimization of tomographic reconstruction workflows on geographically distributed resources


Accepted 9 May 2016

Specimen preparation for cryogenic coherent X-ray diffraction imaging of biological cells and cellular organelles by using the X-ray free-electron laser at SACLA

Detailed procedures and key points in preparing frozen-hydrated biological specimens are reported for efficient cryogenic coherent X-ray diffraction imaging using an X-ray free-electron laser.

Collimating Montel mirror as part of a multi-crystal analyzer system for resonant inelastic X-ray scattering

A dispersive analyzer system using an assembly of multiple flat crystals provides a way of overcoming an intrinsic energy-resolution limit of diced spherical crystal analyzers, commonly used in resonant inelastic X-ray scattering instruments. However, in order to achieve a sufficiently large angular acceptance for collecting scattered radiation, a collimating element is required. For this purpose, a laterally graded, parabolic, multilayer Montel mirror was designed for use at the Ir L3-absorption edge. Its characterization and performance are reported here.

Synchrotron X-ray CT characterization of titanium parts fabricated by additive manufacturing. Part I. Morphology

Synchrotron X-ray tomography has been applied to the study of titanium parts fabricated by additive manufacturing. Samples were chosen to examine the effect of build direction and complexity of design on the surface morphology and final dimensions of the piece.

Accepted 15 April 2016

Novel silica stabilization method for the analysis of fine nanocrystals using coherent X-ray diffraction imaging

The feasibility of a novel one-step `drop-cast' stabilization method as a prompt and efficient approach to extend the accessible size regime of the Bragg coherent diffraction imaging (BCDI) technique is demonstrated. Fine chemically synthesized nanocrystals with dimensions sub-100 nm were stabilized and from BCDI measurements three-dimensional reconstructions of the nanocrystals were achieved.

HiSPoD: a program for high-speed polychromatic X-ray diffraction experiments and data analysis on polycrystalline samples

Software to analyze polychromatic diffraction patterns from polycrystalline samples is described.
