Boundless: Europe-wide and international participation in the advanced training course Laboratory X-Ray Techniques

In 1895, the German physicist Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen discovered a previously invisible kind of radiation. In the same year, he submitted his written communication "On a new type of radiation" to the Physikalisch-Medizinische Gesellschaft zu Würzburg. This old-new radiation, X-rays, still surprises us today in its wide range of applications.

From March 7 to 9, 2022, many interested scientists, engineers, and PhD students from Europe and Asia followed the three-day advanced training course of Prof. Dr. Ehrenfried Zschech, CTO of deepXscan GmbH Dresden and Honorary Professor for nanomaterials at the Brandenburg University of Technology Cottbus-Senftenberg.

Whether manufacturing processes, process and quality control, or research and development, the applications of X-ray techniques in the field in materials science and engineering are manifold. When combined with visual surface inspection, X-ray-based inspection provides a reliable imaging technique to identify structural changes in the metal interior on an atomic basis and detect hidden defect locations. X-ray diffraction and X-ray spectroscopy provide information about the atomic structure and the chemical binding of materials, X-ray tomography is an imaging technique that is visualizing the morphology of materials and hidden defects nondestructively.

Based on the international participation of the community in the online training course on laboratory X-ray techniques for material development and process control, knowledge connects. We want to thank Ehrenfried Zschech and all lecturers for offering the training course in English for our worldwide scientific community.

The next course „Laboratory X-ray Techniques for Materials Development and Process Control“ will be held in Dresden in 2023. Registration information will follow later this year. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at
