3D Imaging with Muon Tomography

Exploiting cosmic rays, such as muons, is now possible, opening the way to new imaging possibilities.

The laboratory has developed a new device capable of following the trajectories of muons in the air, thus making it possible to locate and characterize objects that they may encounter.

An innovative electronic design as well as an original detector panel allow a simple and efficient implementation while allowing high spatial resolution.

To illustrate the use of this technology, it can make it possible to detect dangerous or undeclared materials in containers, making it possible to more systematically identify suspicious loads in circulation.

PULSALYS RESEARCH

PULSALYS is looking for industrial partners for the commercialization of the technology.
