The UFO team at IPE has contributed to ultrafast and high-throughput X-ray tomography with:
- Accelerated reconstruction with GPUs enables online reconstruction and image quality control; the data processing pipeline can be configured by high-level description in the UFO Parallel Processing Framework; continuous processing of data streams in the order of Gigabytes per second.
- The novel fast control system “Concert” integrates beamline instrumentation and the GPU reconstruction pipeline and achieves sample throughput as high as 1000 tomograms per week of beamtime.
- A versatile high-throughput FPGA-based modular smart camera platform has been developed. Key features are: continuous data streaming by PCIe link, the option to realize online data processing and a number of pluggable image sensors from 2 to 20 Megapixel and various frame rates.
