What is it about?

The infrared beamline of Australian Synchrotron has been widely used for chemical imaging. We have used a correlation based approach to investigate the possibilities of 3D chemical imaging based on aberrations. The preliminary results confirmed the possibilities of 3D imaging with a single camera shot.

Why is it important?

The successful proposals of Synchrotron projects usually receive 72 hours or 96 hours at-a-stretch. The samples are continuously studied during this time with the users taking turns of 8-12 hours shift. This approach can reduce the duration of time of recording of samples at the infrared beamline. This approach can reduce time and cost.


This work was a collaborative effort between Swinburne University and Australian Synchrotron.
