     X-ray and Neutron Phase Imaging and Gratings 2015

    PREREGISTRATION HAS NOW CLOSED. Please register onsite at the meeting.

    Plan now to attend the Third Meeting on X-Ray and Neutron Phase Imaging with Gratings (XNPIG 2015), dedicated to the development of phase contrast imaging with penetrating beams and their applications in medicine, material science and other arenas.

    Building on the momentum and enthusiasm of the first two XNPIG meetings, we invite researchers, clinicians, engineers and others in the X-ray and neutron imaging field to present their work and exchange the latest ideas with colleagues of diverse interests in a stimulating workshop. We look forward to seeing you in Washington D.C. in 2015.
