Development of AMPIX-based in situ cell testing system for DANMAX setup receives grant

The development of an in situ cell for the DANMAX setup has just been granted with 500.000 kr by the Carlsberg Foundation. One goal of the development is to combine the AMPIX cell with a 12 position sample stage and have it implemented on the DANMAX beamline. Another goal is to create an active community …
