ASI’s Technology finds additional uses and application within the field of Mass Spectrometry.
High-resolution molecular image of 1 square mm area of mouse testis tissue, with a resolution of 500 nm/pixel
Timepix coupled with a Micro-Channel Plate (MCP) can detect ions with lower energy than the standard silicon sensor. That, together with the capability of measuring the time-of-arrival in individual pixels, allows applications such as mass spectrometry imaging. Our Lion detector with Timepix QTPX-262k sensor was for this purpose modified to operate in high-vacuum environment.
