Abstract
THE AIM OF THE WORK IS TO DEMONSTRATE THE FEASIBILITY OF EMPLOYING QUANTEX'S ELECTRON TRAPPING (ETTM) MATERIALS TO RECORD PROTEIN CRYSTALLOGRAPHIC PATTERNS. A SECONDARY AIM IS TO EVALUATE APPROPRIATE READ-OUT SYSTEMS FOR THIS STORED INFORMATION. THIS NEW TECHNOLOGY SHOULD CONSIDERABLY SIMPLIFY DATA TAKING AND PROCESSING, AND, AS A CONSEQUENCE, SPEED UP THE DATA COLLECTION. THE SPECIFIC WORK THAT WILL BE PERFORMED INCLUDES PHOSPHOR INGOT PREPARATION, POWDER PREPARATION, DETECTOR SCREEN FABRICATION, EVALUATION OF THE SCREENS AND EVALUATION OF THE READ-OUT SYSTEMS. THIS WORK, IF SUCCESSFUL, SHOULD HAVE APPLICATIONS NOT ONLY IN STRUCTURAL BIOLOGY, BUT ALSO IN INORGANIC MATERIALS SCIENCE BECAUSE OF THE POTENTIAL FOR HIGH SENSITIVITY AND HIGH RESOLUTION.
