We developed a multi-beam X-ray imaging detector, consisting of four scintillator screens connected by a branched optical fiber bundle with a CMOS camera. By using the detector and a multi-beam imaging optics with silicon single crystalline blades designed for a white synchrotron radiation source, we successfully demonstrated multi-beam X-ray imaging with an exposure time of 1 ms. The long and flexible optical fiber bundle used for the detector enables us to realize high-speed multi-beam X-ray imaging with high flexibility at a relatively low cost.
