Implementation of a hyperspectral X-ray camera control and processing software chain

Abstract
Hyperspectral X-ray detectors, which provide the full energy spectrum detected by each individual pixel, have become available for use in lab-based facilities. The addition of spectral information currently comes at the cost of low overall acceptable flux rates, and can introduce countrate nonlinearity at higher energies. Neither of these drawbacks are desirable for transmission imaging and tomography. In this paper a new data processing software chain is presented for the SLcam, a pnCCD-based hyperspectral camera prototype, allowing for more control over the conversion from raw frames to hyperspectral images. Complementary to the processing software, a set of live data visualisations was developed to aid in monitoring ongoing experiments and to allow for preliminary data processing on-the-fly. The combination of these software elements forms the first step towards general applicability of hyperspectral imaging at laboratory tomography setups.
