Chair in Emerging Technologies 2020
Professor Olivo’s work will change the way x-rays are used in a variety of fields, including medicine, industrial inspections, and security scans. Since Roentgen’s discovery of x-rays in 1895, their use has been based on differences in attenuation, the way the intensity reduces as the beam passes through a material. Professor Olivo will develop new systems based on his observation that all x-rays emerging from a sample deviate from their original path by very small amounts, providing a wealth of untapped information about the sample they have passed through.
