First detector array delivered to GUSTO mission
The first detector array for NASA's GUSTO mission has passed its pre-shipment review and is now shipping to the University of Arizona for integration into the balloon observatory. SRON together with TU Delft develops GUSTO's three 8-pixel-arrays, for the frequencies 4.7, 1.9 and 1.4 terahertz. They have now finished the array for the 4.7 terahertz channel—the most challenging part. GUSTO is a balloon mission that will measure emissions from cosmic material between stars.

Paper Martijn Nagtegaal on "Myelin water imaging from multi-echo MR relaxometry data using a joint sparsity constraint" is published in NeuroImage
Myelination is a crucial aspect of brain development and is essential for the functioning of the nervous system. Demyelination, on the other hand, is a pathological process that plays an important role in certain diseases such as multiple sclerosis. Accurate measurement of myelin content has the potential to increase our insights into several disease processes. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) enables imaging of features related to (de-)myelination in vivo. Martijn Nagtegaal uses dictionary matching and a joint sparsity multicomponent T2 fit to obtain MWF maps.

IRIS-lab one of the eight new TU Delft AI Labs
TU Delft is setting up eight new AI Labs to investigate how artificial intelligence (AI) can accelerate scientific progress. With the IRIS-lab (Intelligent & Reliable Imaging Systems) the involved researchers David Maresca, Arjen J. Jakobi and Carlas Smith want to open the black box of AI and develop methodologies for context-independent, knowledge-based learning of imaging systems that will address fundamental challenges in all quantitative imaging applications.

Multibeam SEM shifts 3D cell imaging into top gear
Bits&Chips published an article on the development of a multibeam SEM at ImPhys: "Medical and biological scientists are eager to create 3D images for their research at nanometer resolution. However, without an efficient technique to make the scan, the process is difficult and painfully slow. To make this research feasible, ImPhys/TU Delft is teaming up with a consortium of enterprises to develop and innovative device: a multibeam scanning electron microscope".

Master student Thomas van der Sijs publishes paper: “Electromagnetic Scattering beyond the weak regime: Solving the problem of divergent Born series by Pade’ approximants” in Physical Review Research
The paper introduces a new rigorous method to solve electromagnetic scattering problems in the strong scattering regime. Conventional methods such as FDTD, FEM or integral equation methods require computing the solution of a very large set of linear equations.

NWO LIFT grant for Carrol and Hoogenboom labs
An NWO-LIFT grant has been awarded to a consortium of researchers including Elizabeth Carroll and Jacob Hoogenboom from ImPhys. In the consortium, further comprising UMC Groningen and ImPhys spin-off Delmic BV, novel microscopy techniques will be used to better visualize and understand structural/functional properties in medical biology, and to create tissue atlases.
