let me start by stating how grateful I am for your trust in our products in 2018 and hopefully also in the upcoming year – I know you work hard to do exciting new science and it's a privilege to be a part of that! I’m also very grateful to our dedicated operators, engineers and scientists, who support you on your path.
DECTRIS did many great things in 2018, and delivering three flagship EIGER2 X 16M detectors was definitely the highlight. In 2019, we continue to support scientific discoveries at synchrotrons and laboratories, and we help create breakthroughs with industry partners. Also, we are pushing to strengthen our products for electron detection. Therefore I am very excited to see Micro Electron Diffraction get the attention it deserves. I promise DECTRIS will be there to push the limits of this field, too. Perhaps I'll see you there!
P.S. It's time to apply for the DECTRIS Award 2019 for innovative work on DECTRIS detectors, and I would love to see submissions also from rising electron diffraction talent!
The DECTRIS Award recognizes innovative researchers and helps them share their findings with a broader audience at a scientific conference. Last year, Markus Osterhoff received the prize for enabling high-throughput data analysis, and he presented his work at the International Conference for Synchrotron Radiation in Taipei. The second DECTRIS Award widens the scope: in addition to X-ray research, we would love to see applications from scientists using electron methods!
Hybrid photon counting is not an exclusive privilege of X-ray diffraction scientists: the technology pushes the envelope also in X-ray spectroscopy. Our new application note shows some very good examples from synchrotrons, but we also demonstrate how hybrid photon counting detectors have been successfully used to detect wide energy spectra in a single shot with laboratory spectrometers with excellent resolution.
MYTHEN2 R 1D would love to accompany you on your next trip. It comes pre-packed, in the PLANET by xplorex.
Research done by our collaborator, PSI scientist Tim Grüne, on Micro Electron Diffraction has made it into Science magazine’s top 5 Scientific Breakthroughs of the Year 2018. Published together with researchers from DECTRIS and Crystallise!, the celebrated article outlines a radically fast and efficient technique for the pharmaceutical industry to use when researching and creating new drugs.
Dr. Tim Grüne describes how he used the EIGER X 1M to turn a standard transmission electron microscope (TEM) into an efficient electron diffractometer. Dr. Grüne discusses the Micro Electron Diffraction (MicroED) workflow from set-up to collecting and processing data.
