PIXI: Micro-CT for Mars exploration

We are funded by NASA to demonstrate a micro-CT (computed tomography) instrument for analysis of samples on the surface of Mars or other planetary bodies. PIXI (Planetary In-situ X-ray Imager) is a microCT instrument concept intended for deployment to Mars, cometary nuclei, or other planets/planetesimals. Read more.

CartiX:  portable MA-XRF for cultural heritage

In collaboration with NASA and CNRS, we have developed a portable MA-XRF instrument based on an innovative concept: the instrument uses a CCD camera coupled to an imaging X-ray optic to produce chemical maps of an object. Read more.

Portable micro-XRF system

In collaboration with Dr. Walter of LAMS (CNRS/UPMC, Paris), we developed a portable micro-XRF system for chemical analysis of ~100µm sized area in the field.

CheMin:XRD/XRF on Mars

The technology used in our XRD/XRF instruments, including Duetto, derives directly from the NASA CheMin XRD/XRF instrument deployed on Mars Science Laboratory (MSL), also know as the Curiosity rover. Read more.
