The vision of QIM
At the Center for Quantification of Imaging Data from Max IV (QIM) we develop algorithms for quantitative image analysis. The aim of QIM is to support the research carried out at large-scale imaging facilities, including both industrial and clinical applications.
Our team is experienced in analyzing samples across a wide range of scientific disciplines. These projects are carried out either in close collaboration with experimental scientists or on a consultancy basis, and the developed tools are freely available to the public (see Software Tools and Science Cases).
3D Imaging is an extremely powerful technique to study the interior of materials, samples and specimens with applications across a wide range of scientific, industrial and clinical domains. At the newly established, most brilliant synchrotron source in the world at MAX IV laboratory, five imaging beamlines are currently in development.
As data analysis is universally seen as the dominating bottleneck for generation of scientific and industrial results from X-ray imaging,, the QIM centre, a partnership between MAX IV, Lund University, Copenhagen University and the Technical University of Denmark, will support the beamlines at MAX IV with imaging capabilities and the local facilities at DTU and LU with the necessary software and support of users to the point that data analysis is not the main bottleneck any more.
The QIM centre is supported by The Capital Region of Denmark.
