28 Mar Tribute to X-ray imaging pioneer Steve Wilkins
It is with great sadness that we remember Australian X-ray physicist Dr Stephen William Wilkins, who suddenly passed away in Melbourne on the 25th of March 2013. Steve’s major contributions to the areas of X-ray methods and X-ray instrumentation paved the way for widespread implementation of hard X-ray phase-contrast imaging in research, as well as in industry and medicine, all areas of which our group’s work belongs. It is by no exaggeration that Steve’s pioneering work forms the solid ground from which our group’s own hard X-ray phase-contrast imaging techniques are based.
