Start-up firm Novitom (Grenoble, France) reports that it has developed an imaging system that uses the penetrating power of synchrotron photon beams to produce noninvasive, nondestructive analyses of matter, including composite components and structures. The company reports that it can determine, with good detail, the internal structure of products or scientific samples, including chemical and structural data. The technique provides 3-D microscopic reconstructions of matter with what is said to be unprecedented levels of contrast, even with materials that provide low levels of absorption.
