Hauterive, Neuchâtel, 20 December 2018 – G-ray Nanotech and CSEM have achieved a major milestone in packaging the latenium™ technology to deliver disruptive industrial non-destructive testing solutions: the lateniumTM Evaluation Kit. Centered on particle-counting X-ray imaging, these unique solutions are set to improve the quality of the images obtained to significantly improve the quality of industrial products such as aeronautics engines and 3-D printed products, among others. “This major milestone enables us to demonstrate the huge potential of our latenium™ detectors with our first very high resolution images,” enthuses Philippe Le Corre, CEO of G-ray Nanotech.

G-ray Industries SA, a Neuchâtel start-up, is currently developing ultra-high performance detectors dedicated to industrial non-destructive testing solutions. These ultra-high performance detectors will be developed in partnership with CSEM, based on G-ray’s revolutionary lateniumTM technology.

The lateniumTM Evaluation kits are available for evaluation purposes as of Q1-2019. In addition, the G-ray technologies – in particular the covalent bonding of two silicon wafers at low temperatures and the very fast Germanium structures epitaxial growth – are being positioned in the fields of high-energy physics research for new particle detectors and in vision systems for the automotive industry.

“The main challenge is now miniaturising both the sensor’s pixels and the system’s energy consumption, whilst offering very high-quality X-ray imaging for improving industrial non-destructive testing,” explains Mario El-Khoury, CEO at CSEM.

According to Didier Flotté, an non-destructive testing expert at the Institut de Soudure, currently working with G-ray Nanotech, the project’s potential is very important. “We are expecting potentially considerable improvements in non-destructive techniques based on X-ray with the technologies developed by G-ray Nanotech, especially for welds testing: high reduction in health risks by reducing the dose rate and significant improvement in simple and quick high resolution imaging. In my opinion, this kind of progress is eagerly anticipated by the industrial world, and, especially, in aerospace or in nuclear industry.”
