Since the synchrotron X-rays are intense enough even after the sequential expansion of the X-ray beam by successive asymmetric Bragg reflections, live refraction images of internal structure for biological materials can be seen on an X-ray image sensor. Video images of some living insects or a frog or a mouse show clearly their internal structures of the body, for instance, cellular structures in a lung. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.
