POLYX (under construction)

The POLYX beamline will enable multi-scale X-ray and multimodal imaging. It will allow to obtain spatial (2D and 3D) information on the elemental composition and chemical compounds, as well as on crystalline phases occurring in samples.

POLYX will allow research in such fields of science as physics, chemistry, earth and environment sciences, biological sciences, material engineering, chemical engineering, medical engineering, environmental engineering, environmental and industrial biotechnology, electronics, clinical medicine, medical biotechnology, forensic medicine , archeology, research of works of art and protection of monuments.

Beamline team:

  • prof. dr hab. Paweł Korecki, the Jagiellonian University, the Faculty of Physics, Astronomy and Applied Computer Science
  • dr Tomasz Kołodziej, the SOLARIS Centre
  • dr Katarzyna Sowa, the SOLARIS Centre
  • dr Paweł Wróbel, the AGH University of Science and Technology, the Faculty of Physics and Applied Computer Science.
