Abstract

X-ray triscopic imaging system was developed to observe dynamics of samples from three different directions simultaneously. A part of the monochromatic X-ray beam was reflected under Bragg condition using a Si(111) crystal to produce an X-ray beam in a direction different from the incident beam. In the triscopic imaging system, silicon crystals were set at both sides of the wide incident X-ray beam to produce three beams. To obtain a large field of view in the reflected beam, a lapped silicon crystal was used instead of a conventional crystal with a mirror surface. The maximum field of view of 20 mm × 20 mm was achieved with the X-ray energy of 20 keV. X-ray triscopic images could be obtained simultaneously by placing an X-ray detector with a large field of view near the sample. X-ray triscopic images with refraction contrast could be obtained by placing three X-ray detectors, which were synchronized by external trigger signals, at far position from the sample. A live mouse was studied as a dynamical sample. Motions of the heart and lungs in the mouse were clearly observed from three different directions with refraction contrast.
