Q-INSPEX, beyond the visible

The Q-INSPEX technology consortium supports, impels and develops innovative solutions in the field of non-invasive imaging. This way we help companies and organisations worldwide with quantitative inspection by revealing "invisible information".


We engage in collaborative R&D with industry, academia and non-profit institutions through bilateral, multilateral or government-funded channels.

1. We offer solutions to companies and organisations within the existing research findings in the field of non-invasive and quantitative inspection of objects, humans and animals.

2. We develop novel imaging and image processing protocols to non-invasively and quantitatively inspect objects, humans and animals. 

The core imaging technologies currently are X-ray imaging, Hyperspectral imaging, TeraHertz imaging and Thermography. These technologies are largely complementary to each other and can be used in different set-ups.

A few examples of the broad range of solutions for which we develop technology:

        - an R&D tool to measure specific characteristics of materials 

            (e.g. food structures or polymers)

        - a quality control procedure implemented within an industrial setting

            (i.e. compatible with processing speeds)

        - in-field inspections of crops and infrastructure 

            (e.g. corrosion detection)

We have developed solutions for a wide variety of domains: additive manufacturing, composites, art objects, textiles, archaeology, crops, food, etc.

Call for Challenges

Q-INSPEX is actively looking for collaborations with industry (medical, industrial inspection, art & conservation etc.)

Contact us for obtaining insights into solutions for your challenges.

The purpose of science is not to analyse or describe but to make useful models of the world. A model is useful if it allows us to get use out of it.
