    Abstract

    Time-resolved imaging with penetrating radiation has an outstanding scientific value but its realisation requires a high density of photons as well as corresponding fast X-ray image detection schemes. Bending magnets and insertion devices of third generation synchrotron light sources offer a polychromatic photon flux density which is high enough to perform hard X-ray imaging with a spatio-temporal resolution up to the μm-μs range. Existing indirect X-ray image detectors commonly used at synchrotron light sources can be adapted for fast image acquisition by employing CMOS-based digital high speed cameras already available on the market. Selected applications from life sciences and materials research underline the high potential of this high-speed hard X-ray microimaging approach.
