A novel x-ray source proposal based on radiations channeling in periodical structures will be presented. The state-of-the-art of polycapillary optics based systems applied for elemental analysis and x-ray imaging will be given paying main attention to μ-XRF and TXRF studies as well as to dedicated x-ray microscopy studies for advanced μ- tomography. Many important medical imaging...
10. Radiation-induced photoluminescent point defects in lithium fluoride for versatile X-ray imaging detectors
Dr Francesca Bonfigli (ENEA C.R. Frascati, Fusion and Technologies for Nuclear Safety and Security Dep., Photonics Micro- and Nano-structures Laboratory, FSN-TECFIS-MNF,V. E. Fermi, 45, 00044 Frascati (Rome), Italy)
Microscopy imaging detectors play a crucial role in the field of X-ray technologies. The research and development of new advanced detectors is fundamental in order to overcome some of the limits of the standard ones. Solid-state X-ray imaging detectors based on visible photoluminescence from aggregated electronic defects, known as colour centres (CCs), locally produced in lithium fluoride...

X-ray analytical techniques are widely used in the world. By the way, due to the strong radiation–matter interaction, to design optical devices suitable for X-ray radiation remains still of wide interest. As a consequence of novel advanced material studies, in the last 30 years several typologies of X-ray lenses have been developed. Nowadays, polycapillary optics (polyCO) is a commonly...

The amyloidogenic islet amyloid polypeptide (IAPP) and the associated pro-peptide ProIAPP1-48 are involved in cell death in type 2 diabetes mellitus. It has been observed that interactions of this peptide with metal ions are connected with both the cytotoxicity of the peptides and their deposition as amyloids fibrils associated. In particular, Cu(II) seems to inhibit amyloid fibril...
