Overview of the FleX-RAY debut in PSD12

October 06, 2021

The gates of the 12th International Conference on Position Sensitive Detectors have closed. The hybrid event, with both in-person and virtual attendance, marked the first appearance of the FleX-RAY project in front of the technological and scientific community. More specifically, Dr. Scott Wilbur from the University of Sheffield has given a poster presentation on “Flexible X-Ray Imaging Detectors Using Scintillating Fibres.”

The post-conference highlights are remarkably positive and offer interesting perspectives to the discussion on FleX-RAY and the many possibilities of the project. In a nutshell, FleX-RAY appeared to have impressed the attendees of the conference. Inspired by the project’s work on scintillating fibres, fruitful exchanges have commenced on the concept of meta-scintillators. At the same time, there were early discussions with professionals from the health-tech sector about using FleX-RAY technology. The conference proceedings will be published in the Journal of Instrumentation (JINST), a multidisciplinary, peer-reviewed journal, to publicise the projects, disseminate the ideas, and support the research community’s needs.

At present, if curious to learn more about PSD12, feel free to visit the conference’s website below. Follow the link to the Scientific Programme, where many of the conference’s presentations are available to download and witness the versatility of detectors and applications in various industries.
