Development of Ultrasonic Acoustic Levitation Diffractometer

Ultrasonic acoustic levitation diffractometer is a novel tool for protein crystallography experiments combining the acoustic levitation, fast-frame-rate X-ray image detector, and high-brightness X-ray source. We aim at realizing a high-speed, high-sample-efficiency, high-throughput crystallography tool at room temperature.

See Ultrasonic acoustic levitation for fast frame rate X-ray protein crystallography at room temperature and highlight.
