 Project objective

Luxbright(LXB) has a disruptive nanomaterial X-ray tube w/ field emission,cold cathode, & electron beam focussing. It enables high freq pulsing, high flux micro focused beam.

LXB tech includes X-ray tubes that are related to an innovative electron emitter & an X-ray device using it, & bring Luxbright to the forefront of X-ray imaging by offering low dose, low power consumption & fast switching. LXB has an electron guiding & receiving element, the “Eleenna” Embodiment, a micro focus beam with spatial steadiness & efficient internal cooling, LXB extends further with ultra high resolution X-ray imaging & to a broader market place & even high voltage applications.

LXB identified that in the security screening, threat detection & non-destructive inspection space there lies some problems that officials & device manufacturers are trying to solve: Image clarity & processing intelligence limits effectiveness of systems-Throughput of scanners slow because of need to separate materials(liquidstech) Bulkiness & size of scanners is non-portable, non-flexible, & ‘permanent’ Radiation exposure to personnel a concern Power footprint of scanners prevents portable imaging Expensive components & slowly evolving technology result in inefficient spending Postal risks are on the rise, as countries wish to have but cannot afford fast enough a 100% parcel scan solution, & must resort to ‘spot checking’ for threats.

Recent Terror has increased the need for addressing these and it is becoming more urgent & critical. There are more risks, more travellers, more post & more need for security radiology scanners. Is there any new technological solutions that may enable cost, speed, portability or safety increases? LXB aims to address to these issues, innovating the core of radiology inspection: the x-ray source itself. ColdNano-X projects aims on commercializing security solutions for portable bag scanning, post scanning, & 3d CT. It seeks tight integration with the medipix & other detectors.
