About us

Beautiful x-ray applications for advanced x-ray scattering and imaging

At PoliMiX we make an innovative use of X rays in fundamental science and industrial applications. Based at the Physics Department of POLIMI – Politecnico di Milano, we collaborate with major synchrotrons and free electron laser x-ray facilities in Europe and with Italian companies producing x-ray instrumentation and systems.

In the past 15 years we have been leading the development of RIXS, resonant inelastic x-ray scattering, an energy-loss spectroscopy used to measure the energy of charge, orbital, spin and lattice excitations in quantum materials.

We also support X-NEXT company in the development of automated x-ray inspection systems for industrial applications.
