The microstructure of an object determines its properties. It tells you why some pillows are soft and why others remember the shape of your head. The Vision Lab develops new imaging techniques to look inside objects in 3D at the microscale. We now have open positions for PhD students to work on X-ray phase contrast tomography. Tomography is a 3D image reconstruction technique that leans strongly on large-scale numerical algebra. It has a wide range of applications in medicine (CT-scans), industry (nondestructive testing, inspection and quality control) and science (3D characterization and material analysis).

Due to the rapidly evolving situation related to COVID-19 and the ongoing government guidelines, the BPS Board has taken the difficult decision to postpone the General Scientific Meeting 2020, scheduled to be held on May 20th in Hasselt. This is disappointing but we have not taken this decision lightly – the health and safety of our members, participants and staff is our priority.
In the meantime we are considering to organize our meeting in May 2021, also in Hasselt. A new date will be communicated as soon as possible.
Edited by Jan Govaerts and Jean-François Stoffel from This book presents the first English translation of the original French treatise “La Physique d’Einstein” written by the young Georges Lemaître in 1922, only six years after the publication of Albert Einstein’s theory of General Relativity. It includes an historical introduction and a critical edition of the original treatise in French supplemented by the author’s own later additions and corrections. More info on this link.
