Project Description

Tribogenics patented technology enables portable, compact X-ray solutions for applications in precious metal, mining, military, medical imaging, security and other industries. By miniaturizing X-ray sources and eliminating the need for high voltage, they can create products and solutions unattainable using existing X-ray technology. Tribogenics revolutionary X-ray solution emerged from DARPA and TATRC-funded initiatives at UCLA and was developed by prominent scientists.

Triboluminescence, or light from friction, has been observed since the time of the Greeks. Whether it involves rocks or Wint-O-Green Lifesavers, triboluminescence produces a brilliant show of light. But no one had any idea the energy could be this powerful. In 2008, a team of physicists at UCLA working with DARPA funding discovered that this same phenomenon can be harnessed to generate X-rays. That lone revelation promises to have the biggest impact on X-rays since their discovery. Like many scientific advances, in hindsight, it shouldn’t have been a surprise at all. Clouds have made lightning by tribocharging for millions of years through the beautiful struggle of static-electrical discord. Simply put, our discovery is lightning in a bottle.

Tribogenics is expanding their discovery, developing meaningful solutions for consumer, industrial, medical and security applications. They have worked tirelessly to apply this discovery to a host of innovative new X-ray solutions for the industrial and security markets. 

Technological advances are generally able to make products better or smaller or more cost-effective. Their does all three by eliminating the bulky, power-wasting, costly components that are currently used in lumbering, older X-ray sources.

Excellent first-class work as usual. Thanks.
