Abstract:

THE TECHNOLOGIES OF HIGH BRIGHTNESS X-RAY SOURCES AND HOLOGRAPHIC IMAGING INDIVIDUALLY HAVE A LARGE RANGE OF POTENTIAL APPLICATIONS IN DEFENSE, COMMERCIAL, AND SCIENTIFIC SECTORS. THE FEASIBILITY IS BEINGDETERMINED OF DEVELOPING A COMMERCIALLY VIABLE TECHNOLOGY FOR BIOLOGICAL X-RAY MICROHOLOGRAPHY INTEGRATING BOTH HIGH BRIGHTNESS X-RAY SOURCE AND THE TECHNOLOGY FOR IMAGE RECONSTRUCTION. SPECIFICALLY, AN ESTIMATE IS BEING DEVELOPED OF THE SCALING OF THE PEAK SOURCE BRIGHTNESS AND EFFICIENCY IN X-RAY SOURCE TECHNOLOGY. AN ASSESSMENT IS BEING UNDERTAKEN OF ENERGY DEPOSITION RATES AND, PARTICULARLY, THE SPATIAL CONTROL OF THE ENERGY. IN ADDITION, A GENERAL PROGNOSIS IS DEVELOPED FOR THE TECHNOLOGY OF HOLOGRAPHIC RECONSTRUCTION. AN ASSESSMENT IS BEING UNDERTAKEN OF THE DEVELOPMENT OF FAST ALGORITHMS ALONG WITH A PROJECTION OF THE ASSOCIATED DEVELOPMENTS IN COMPUTER HARDWARE AND HOLOGRAPHIC DETECTOR TECHNOLOGY. THIS INFORMATION WOULD ENABLE THE FORMULATION OF DESIRED SCALING RELATIONSHIPS FOR INFORMATION HANDLING CAPABILITY, COMPUTATIONAL SPEED, SYSTEM SIZE, AND SYSTEMCOST. NUMEROUS APPLICATIONS TO A BROAD SPECTRUM OF DEFENSE AND COMMERCIAL APPLICATIONS WOULD EXIST INCLUDING MATERIALS SCIENCE AND BIOLOGICAL MICROHOLOGRAPHY.
