Pattern Recognition Lab featured on the Cover of the Journal of Microscopy
Mareike Thies’ work “Calibration by differentiation – Self-supervised calibration for X-ray microscopy using a differentiable cone-beam reconstruction operator” was featured on the cover of the August 2022 Issue of the Journal of Microscopy.
The work features a novel approach to X-ray CT calibration using differentiable back-projection to calibrate an X-ray microscope using known operators. With this technique, supervised and unsupervised calibration using the imaged specimen is possible. This approach enables a fast and simple approach to general X-ray system calibration.
