“A New Camera System for Cryo-Electron Microscopy”
Anna Clare Milazzo – Chemistry Department, UCSD
Both film and CCD cameras have significant drawbacks when used in imaging systems for cryo-EM. A new camera system for cryo-EM has been developed using an Active Pixel Sensor (APS) array that directly detects electrons. This talk will present a discussion of how the APS works as well as results from a prototype APS that show that this camera system will provide high throughput, high resolution digital image acquisition.
