ASI will attend the 5th International Particle Accelerator Conference (IPAC)


The 5th International Particle Accelerator Conference IPAC’14 will take place at the International Congress Center Dresden, Germany, from June 15 – 20,2014. The conference has been held consecutively in Asia, Europe and North America since 2010, and combines the previous continental conferences. This is the second IPAC to be held in Europe.

A Week at the Hannover Messe

It has been a great week for ASI and our sister company Omics2Image at the Hannover Messe! We spotted Rutte and Merkel, displayed our innovationative products at the Holland High Tech Stand and walked around on the largest industry fair of the world. At the last day, CEO Hans Roeland Poolman and Ron Heeren had a conversation with the State Secretary of Education, Culture and Science, Sander Dekker, about ASI and Omics2Image. Pictures and highlights can be found on our twitter account!



Hans Roeland Poolman Speaker at ESS Partner Day

On 12 March 2014, an ESS supported Partner and Industry day will take place in Delft, The Netherlands, where the European Spallation Source (ESS) will present collaboration opportunities to organizations and companies from the partner country. On behalf of Amsterdam Scientific Instruments, Hans Roeland Poolman will present the Timepix Detector.

Timepix cameras for large area detection

We offer new detector for large area detection, based on the Timepix. The sizes are:

•2QTPX-524k (512×1024)
•3QTPX-786k (512×1536)
•4QTPX-1M (512×2048)
•2Q2TPX-1M (1024×1024)

Detector Seminar Prof. dr. R. Klanner

Wednesday the 9th of October there has been a seminar by  prof. dr. Klanner regarding the European X-Ray Free-Electron Laser XFE.

In short, the high instantaneous intensity and the high repetition rate of 4.5 MHz of the European X-Ray Free-Electron Laser XFEL pose new challenges for imaging detectors. The specific requirements for the detectors are a dynamic range of up to more than 104 photons of typically 12.4 keV per pixel for an XFEL pulse duration of < 100 fs, with a clear separation of 1 from 0 photons, and a radiation tolerance for doses up to 1 GGy for 3 years of operation. Within the AGIPD Collaboration the Hamburg group has systematically studied the consequences of these requirements for p+n silicon sensors and has optimized the sensor design using TCAD simulations. In February 2013 the first batches have been received and first measurements show that the optimization has been successful.
