Open Access research that helps to deliver "better medicines"...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by the Strathclyde Institute of Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences (SIPBS), a major research centre in Scotland and amongst the UK's top schools of pharmacy.

Research at SIPBS includes the "New medicines", "Better medicines" and "Better use of medicines" research groups. Together their research explores multidisciplinary approaches to improve understanding of fundamental bioscience and identify novel therapeutic targets with the aim of developing therapeutic interventions, investigation of the development and manufacture of drug substances and products, and harnessing Scotland's rich health informatics datasets to inform stratified medicine approaches and investigate the impact of public health interventions.

Abstract

The use of a direct electron detector for the simple acquisition of 2D electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD) maps and 3D EBSD datasets with a static sample geometry has been demonstrated in a focused ion beam scanning electron microscope. The small size and flexible connection of the Medipix direct electron detector enabled the mounting of sample and detector on the same stage at the short working distance required for the FIB. Comparison of 3D EBSD datasets acquired by this means and with conventional phosphor based EBSD detectors requiring sample movement showed that the former method with a static sample gave improved slice registration. However, for this sample detector configuration, significant heating by the detector caused sample drift. This drift and ion beam reheating both necessitated the use of fiducial marks to maintain stability during data acquisition.
