Project details

The ANU CTLab imaging facility for X-ray micro-tomography is central to a recently commenced Australian Research Council (ARC) Industrial Transformation Training Centre (ITTC) on Multiscale 3D Imaging, Modelling and Manufacturing. ANSTO are collaborating with ANU to form the imaging core of this training centre that promises to be a disruptive technology for the many industry partners involved.

Under this project PhD students can work with scientists from imaging beamlines at the Australian Synchrotron, i.e., Dr Chris Hall (IMBL), Dr Martin DeJonge (XFM), Dr Andrew Stevenson (MCT), or with Dr Ulf Garbe at the Lucas Heights nuclear reactor imaging beamline (DINGO). Under the supervision of computational imaging scientists from ANU, they will be developing techniques in multi-modal, multi-scale, and dynamic imaging and tomography; The program involves spending 1 year on-site at ANSTO (either Sydney or Melbourne).

Required background

  • Mathematics (Fourier transforms, Multivariable calculus, Linear algebra, Statistics)
  • Physics (Optics)
  • Some experience in programming, preferably python.

Project suitability

This research project can be tailored to suit students of the following type(s)
  • Phd or MPhil
