This is a report on the feasibility of a tomography system for application to gas and liquid phase systems. The technique is based on X-ray stimulated fluorescence, using collimated sources and detectors. It differs from other tomography modes in that it is able to identify and resolve different chemical species and that it eliminates the need for an inversion calculation. The technique measures the distribution and concentration of chemical species, which can be useful in reaction plants and flow systems. The feasibility of the measurement principle is governed by the fluorescence yield.
