ABSTRACT

INTRODUCTION

PROBLEM STATEMENT

Fig 4: Key elements of an x-ray fluorescence tomography experiment. The x-ray fluorescence is monitored while the sample is rotated and translated by a precision stage. Both the step size of the stage motions and the focal spot size of the probe beam determine the spatial resolution in the reconstructed image.
