High sensitivity X-ray imaging system

Real time visualization of X-ray beams

Xsight Mneme

High dynamic range

Suiting a wide range of applications, Rigaku offers the Xsight Mneme system to provide real time visualization for general purpose X-ray imaging applications in academic and industrial settings. The standard version utilizes a phosphor optimized for imaging energies in the range 8-30 keV but versions are available suitable for higher and lower energy ranges.

High sensitivity

Utilizing the latest in CMOS imagers fiber-optically coupled with high performance image intensification, the Xsight Mneme provides high sensitivity for imaging even low-flux X-ray beams or images in real time. The system’s ability to adjust video frame rate, integration time and intensifier gain allows the Xsight Mneme to image X-rays over a wide range of input illuminations.In the sensor module, X-rays are converted into visible light by use of a scintillator. The light is then amplified by an intensifier and imaged by a CMOS video camera fiber-optically coupled to the output of the intensifier.

Large image area with high resolution

Two input image areas are available to further tailor the system to the application. Pixel sizes as small as 11 μm produce high-resolution X-ray images. With a built-in universal camera mount and a remote trigger input the Xsight Mneme is ideal for real time experiments. The system is also self-powered by the dual USB connection.

Flexible software

The system consists of a detector head with a USB 2.0 interface. It is supplied with the Xsight software application allowing control of image acquisition and adjustment of the detector parameters, including frame rate, integration time, video gain and intensifier gain.
