We demonstrate layer-by-layer x-ray microimaging using polycapillary optics. The depth resolution is achieved without sample or source rotation and in a way similar to classical tomography or laminography. The method takes advantage from large angular apertures of polycapillary optics and from their specific microstructure, which is treated as a coded aperture. The imaging geometry is compatible with polychromatic x-ray sources and with scanning and confocal x-ray fluorescence setups.

    Many materials contain a random microstructure that can have an adverse effect on ultrasonic measurements (reducing signal strength, increasing noise and reducing accuracy) through scattering and aberration of the acoustic field. To account for those adverse effects we have developed a phase...

    A low-loss terahertz air-core microstructure fiber is demonstrated for terahertz waveguiding. Substantially low attenuation constant less than 0.01 cm-1 has been achieved and the guiding wavelength is found to be tunable by linear scaling the fiber size. The experimental results well agree with...

    We study granular materials characterized by the possibility of interlocking between the particles. The Interlocking is modeled as the combined effect of sliding and rolling resistance at the contacts, and it involves two contact parameters: a coefficient of sliding friction and a coefficient of...
