At the conference "2nd International Conference on Tomography of Materials and Strucutres (ICTMS)" at 30.6.-3.7.2015 in Québec, J. Maisenbacher (KIT/IAM-WK) presented actual results of VI-NRMM in a talk titled "Grating based Differential Phase Contrast Imaging of an Interpenetrating AlSi12/Al2O3 Metal Matrix Composite".
The half years meeting of the VI-NXMM took place 7.-8.5.2015 in Karlsruhe. Organized by KIT/IAM-WK, 24 members took part, meeting in the attic floor.

For the first time rolled foil mirror optics have been fabricated by winding a polyimide foil carrying suitable spacers. These optics can be used at synchrotron sources as well as at laboratory sources for illuminating
A new visibility record was achieved with improved sun-ray gratings. Using the same X-ray tube setup at TU Munich as in June, the visibility was increased by about 40%.
A prepared frog has been phase contrast imaged at TUM. The experiment was performed to investigate the possibility to image larger objects using a stitched large area X-ray grating made out of four individual gratings.
At 14.-16.10.2013 PhD-students of VI-NXMM met in Ratzeburg for exchange of ideas and to discuss questions and the state of research with the other students.
A cardiac valve was phase contrast imaged using a setup of two stitched gratings. For the first time a stitched grating was used in
