Amsterdam Scientific Instruments
Amsterdam Scientific Instruments (ASI) is a fast-growing high-tech company located in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. The company was founded in 2011 as a spin-off of the Dutch National Institute for Subatomic Physics (Nikhef) and the Dutch Research Council Institute for the physics of functional complex matter (AMOLF).
Our mission is to progress the pace and scope of scientific research by enabling more sensitive and accurate measurement of high-energy particles. We empower researchers with sophisticated instruments that spark breakthrough discoveries and generate new insights into the functional dynamics and properties of X-rays, photons, electrons, neutrons and ions.
ASI produces hybrid-pixel detectors specialized for a broad range of analytical imaging techniques in fundamental physics, materials science and life science research. Our detectors are based on the Medipix/Timepix sensor ASIC developed and marketed by CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research based in Geneva, Switzerland. Primary applications supported by ASI’s devices involve diffraction-based electron microscopy (e.g. MicroED, Single Particle Analysis and 4D STEM), time-resolved microscopy (e.g. EELS, Molecular Imaging), and reaction microscopy (e.g. VMI, PEPICO, TOF-PEEM). ASI’s detectors offer unprecedented performance, with attributes including single particle sensitivity, noiseless detection, event-based time stamping, wide dynamic range, and ultra-fast frame rates .
At ASI, we take great care to satisfy our customers by providing customizable hardware solutions, powerful and intuitive software tools, and dedicated installation and support services. We are passionate about innovation and strive to deliver the best quality products to our customers.
