Collaboration and communication are central to our activities.

We work with Manchester colleagues and other users of national facilities providing equipment and technical support for high risk or challenging experiments.

We organise a range of events including public seminars and workshops.

Annual workshop on Advances in X-ray imaging

Since 2016, we have held an annual workshop in the summer on Advances in X-ray imaging, the aim of which is to bring together scientists from different fields to discuss developments and applications of a variety of X-ray imaging and complementary techniques, and to build international collaborations.

These workshops are a collaboration between The University of Manchester at Harwell, 3Dmagination Ltd, Diamond Light Source and the Collaborative Computational Project in Tomographic Imaging (CCPi), all of whom co-fund and co-organise the event. These workshops take place over one or two days, with speakers coming from a range of international organisations.

Our most recent workshop in this series was held in 2019; the 2020 workshop was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  The topic for this year was due to focus on correlative imaging such as coupling diffraction, spectroscopy or neutron imaging with X-ray tomography, 4D in situ experiments, reconstruction algorithms and big data / machine learning techniques. 

The next workshop in this series is now confirmed as 1-2 February 2021. For more information, see our events section.
