Coded-Aperture Imaging. A brief introduction to its principles and application
The coded-aperture imaging (CAI) has been widely used in X-ray astronomy, inertial confinement fusion studies, radiation safety and so on. It is applied to measure the intensity distribution of a neutron/gamma source. In this presentation, the principles of coding imaging and the author's work at the Xi’an Jiaotong University (XJTU) is reviewed. Then the feasibility of imaging of the IREN facility neutron producing target is discussed. Finally, a new imaging technique named Scattering /Capture Neutron/Gamma Coded Tomography is introduced.
