Lynkeos is a Scottish company founded in August 2016 to develop our novel Muon Imaging System (MIS) for commercial applications. Our experienced team has produced a state-of-the-art 3D, passive imaging system that uses naturally-occurring background radiation in the form of cosmic-ray muons to inspect the contents of complex, shielded structures.
Lynkeos is the first company in Europe that specialises in Muon Tomography technology, which addresses some of the most complex technical challenges facing society today. Our focus until now has been the challenge faced by the global Nuclear Industry of safely processing and storing large quantities of nuclear waste. Our MIS is the only means to identify fragments of uranium fuel within shielded, concrete-filled containers.
Lynkeos was spun-out by the Nuclear Physics group at the University of Glasgow after a successful £4.8 million R&D programme funded by Sellafield Ltd. on behalf of the UK Nuclear Decommissioning Authority. This initial programme was carried out in collaboration with the UK National Nuclear Laboratory.
