Here we introduce a new forward model and imaging modality for Bragg Scattering Tomography (BST). The model we propose is based on an X-ray portal scanner with linear detector collimation, currently being developed for use in airport baggage screening. The geometry under consideration leads us to a novel two-dimensional inverse problem, where we aim to reconstruct the Bragg scattering differential cross section function from its integrals over a set of symmetric $ C^2 $ curves in the plane. The integral transform which describes the forward problem in BST is a new type of Radon transform, which we introduce and denote as the Bragg transform. We provide new injectivity results for the Bragg transform here, and describe how the conditions of our theorems can be applied to assist in the machine design of the portal scanner. Further we provide an extension of our results to $ n $-dimensions, where a generalization of the Bragg transform is introduced. Here we aim to reconstruct a real valued function on $ \mathbb{R}^{n+1} $ from its integrals over $ n $-dimensional surfaces of revolution of $ C^2 $ curves embedded in $ \mathbb{R}^{n+1} $. Injectivity proofs are provided also for the generalized Bragg transform.

The detectors are collimated to planes, and the scattering events occur along lines $ L = \{x_2 = a, x_3 = 0\} $, for some $ -1<a<1 $. The scatter from $ L $ is measured by detectors $ \mathbf{d}\in\{x_2 = 1, x_3 = \epsilon\} $, for some $ \epsilon>0 $

The crystal sample (the red plane) is placed between, and is parallel to the $ \hat{ \mathbf{s}} $-plane and $ \hat{ \mathbf{d}} $-plane. The center of the base of the cone is $ \textbf{b} $, the source opening angle is $ \beta $ (as in figure 1a), and the source width is $ w = |\textbf{b}-\hat{ \mathbf{s}}|\tan\beta $.
