Gamma optics

Experimenting at the Institut Laue-Langevin scientists at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universit├Ąt in Munich and the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics in Garching have been using silicon prisms to look at the diffraction of gamma rays. The group is looking at gamma ray optics applications for the possible three dimensional, micrometre scale brain mapping of the impact of lithium based drugs used to treat depression.
