This paper reports the development of an X-ray imaging facility on Indus-2, synchrotron source at RRCAT, India and its potential applications in biomedical imaging. Indus-2 is country's first third-generation synchrotron source operating at energy of 2.5 Gev and current ~ 200 mA. It is a source of wide spectrum photon beam with very high flux and brilliance; therefore, it can be used for a variety of research such as spectroscopy, diffraction, imaging, lithography, and radiation processing. The development of X-ray imaging beamline here and implementation of several advanced imaging techniques, such as phase-contrast radiography, laminography, tomography, real-time imaging, and fluorescence imaging, has opened up new opportunities for characterization and study of soft tissue and biomaterials. This state of the art national facility is open to users for research in materials, biomedical and microtomography applications.
