Two new arrays complete detector for GUSTO missionGUSTO is a balloon telescope that will simultaneously map three types of material in the gas and dust between stars. SRON and TU Delft develop all three detector arrays for this NASA mission. The final two flight arrays have now passed their pre-shipment review and are shipped to the University of Arizona for integration into the balloon observatory. Together with the earlier shipped array for 4.7 terahertz, the 1.4 and 1.9 terahertz arrays complete GUSTO's flight detector.

Unique coherent Soft X-Ray source arrives in DelftA unique Soft X-Ray source was recently installed at the Optics Research Group of the department of Imaging Physics. This source will play a key role within the LINX-consortium, which TU Delft leads. The aim of this consortium is to generate new techniques to image extremely small features in 3D, for example on next generation computer chips.

Life from the lab
Scientists at TU Delft want to make a synthetic cell from separate biological building blocks.
Crafting matter atom by atom
Over the past twenty years, the scale of data storage decreased at an astonishing rate. With society currently creating more than a billion gigabytes of data every day, further decrease of data storage area is becoming increasingly relevant. Together with his team, however, Prof. Sander Otte from Delft University of Technology found the ultimate solution.
Tinkering under the bonnet of life
CRISPR-Cas9, the technique scientists use to very precisely edit DNA, is receiving global attention. And rightly so, because this technology has far-reaching consequences. A longer life in good health? The end of genetic disorders? Crops that are able to survive in the harshest conditions? CRISPR-Cas9 brings all of this and more within our grasp. The research group of Dr Stan Brouns at the department of Bionanoscience is conducting fundamental research into how CRISPR systems function. What is his take on the forthcoming revolution?
