Traditional X-ray imaging systems have based on the absorption of material. Unlike such absorption-based X-ray imaging system, recently, the grating based Talbot-Lau interferometer employing a low brilliance and incoherent X-ray source is widely adopted in medical imaging. This implementation is attractive because it does not require a coherent X-ray source nor long propagation distance. The X-ray differential phase contrast imaging system is a three-grating X-ray DPC system, and its optimum design is relatively insensitive to the source spectrum. High energy and wide field of view applications eventually require grating-less sources and detectors.
