Zeolites derived using ASI detector

An Extra-Large-Pore Zeolite with 24 8 8-Ring Channels Using a Structure-Directing Agent Derived

Researchers from Sweden and China have synthesized a new large pore zeolite SYSU‐3. Continuos rotation electron diffraction, with ASI’s sensitive direct electron detector, was used to determine the atomic structure of the zeolite. To further investigate chemical properties and to study binding interactions, Nuclear Magnetic Resonance was used. These techniques can complement each other increasing […]

structural determination of micron-sized crystal

A Rare Lysozyme Crystal Form Solved Using Highly Redundant Multiple Electron Diffraction Datasets from Micron-Sized Crystals 

Researchers from Stockholm University solved the structure of lysozyme from micro-crystals with a rare crystal form using ASI’s sensitive detector technology. Due to the detectors’ high read-out speed, in a short time, multiple datasets could be collected improving the final model quality. SUMMARY Recent developments of novel electron diffraction techniques have shown to be powerful […]

Medipix based detector heroes in NRC’s science article

Last week, Dorine Schenk from renowned Dutch newspaper NRC handelsblad wrote an article in the Scientific weekend special on the Timepix/Medipix based radiation detector that we have developed over the last few years in collaboration with Nikhef, and CERN. As the full article is originally published in Dutch, we’ve written a short piece on it in English: In […]

Timepix3 coincidence velocity map

1.5 ns accuracy time stamping optical camera paper approved

The paper of Arthur Zhao and Thomas Weinacht from Stony Brook University, in collaboration with ASI, Nikhef, Brookhaven National Laboratory, and the Czech Technical University was approved yesterday by the Review of Scientific Instruments: Title: Coincidence velocity map imaging using Tpx3Cam, a time stamping optical camera with 1.5 ns timing resolution Authors: Arthur Zhao, Martin […]

Nikhef gravitation waves

Nikhef’s direct involvement in the detection of gravitational waves in the collision of neutron stars

Congratulations to our founding institute Nikhef. Our founding institute Nikhef was directly involved in the detection of gravitational waves and lights in a spectacular cosmic event. During the collision of two neutron stars gravitational waves in form of ripples in space and time could be captured. The emitted waves were observable for about 100 seconds, […]

Protein Crystallography goes Nano!

Researchers from Switzerland, Sweden and the Netherlands recently solved the atomic structure from a single protein nano-crystal (volume: 0.14 um3) using ASI’s detector technology. This is an order of magnitude smaller than what was previously achievable and is due to the unprecedented sensitivity of the detector. This paves the way for structure determination of macromolecules […]
