Abstract: We prove that

$\displaystyle \Vert X(\vert u\vert^2)\Vert _{L^3_{t,\ell }}\leq C\Vert f\Vert _{L^2(\mathbb{R}^2)}^2,$    

where $ u(x,t)$ is the solution to the linear time-dependent Schrödinger equation on $ \mathbb{R}^2$ with initial datum $ f$ and $ X$ is the (spatial) X-ray transform on $ \mathbb{R}^2$. In particular, we identify the best constant $ C$ and show that a datum $ f$ is an extremiser if and only if it is a gaussian. We also establish bounds of this type in higher dimensions $ d$, where the X-ray transform is replaced by the $ k$-plane transform for any $ 1\leq k\leq d-1$. In the process we obtain sharp $ L^2(\mu )$ bounds on Fourier extension operators associated with certain high-dimensional spheres involving measures $ \mu $ supported on natural ``co-$ k$-planarity'' sets.
