related to CLS,
have been found innovative and promising.
The disclosed innovation of some of these IP-Docs, has already been used for the development of new Systems (e.g.
the "miniature-synchrotron" in TUM/LMU Munich,
since May 2015).
as for example EP2846422A1,
disclose smart approaches,
such as a fiber-driven FEL,
feeding a LASER Wake-field Accelerator (LWFA),
creating a UV/Soft-X-Ray light-source,
promising another step towards affordable and compact medical-imaging CLS.
It is not easy to predict the exact evolution of Compact Light Sources,
following the Industrial Property innovation path.
there is no doubt that there is already a break-through in X-ray Imaging,
a disruptive innovation,
that will be followed soon by other R&D groups working in this field.
Desk-top monochromatic X-Ray sources in affordable cost,
for medical Imaging,
are not yet a reality,
they are not any more a dream.
There is already an operating,
expensive but functionable tool,
that will be very helpful,
as a reference clinical CLS for Medical Imaging,
as well as,
a precize tissue characterization method,
for the years to come.
