An innovative technology for Nondestructive Testing and Characterization of large industrial structures and high-density systems using cosmic muon radiation.
Muon Systems offers a muon tomography service oriented to large industrial and natural structures using in-home developed detectors, algorithms, and analysis tools.
The technique utilizes cosmic muon radiation present naturally in the environment, being its application innocuous, safe, and clean.
We combine state-of-the-art detection technologies with innovative manufacturing and processing solutions, making the muon tomography a competitive and novel technology, that provides solutions at a scale never achieved by traditional tomographic systems.
What does Muon Tomography allow?
Muon Tomography allows to explore and observe the interior of large objects, structures, and environments, without any contact or damage, and without having physical access to them. It is similar to other Nondestructive methods such as X-rays imaging, but with some fundamental advantages: it uses natural radiation, the application is safe and clean, and it provides a higher level of penetration in matter..
Cosmic muon radiation was observed for the first time at the beginning of the XXth century. This radiation has been widely studied since then, and the validity of the technique has been extensively contrasted, although it remains relatively unknown for the general public.
The latest advances in the design and manufacturing of the detectors make Muon Tomography a very attractive and competitive technique to solve many problems of the industry.
