Amsterdam Scientific Instruments

Amsterdam Scientific Instruments (ASI) is a fast-growing high-tech company located in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. The company was founded in 2011 as a spin-off of the Dutch National Institute for Subatomic Physics (Nikhef) and the Dutch Research Council Institute for the physics of functional complex matter (AMOLF).

Our mission is to progress the pace and scope of scientific research by enabling more sensitive and accurate measurement of high-energy particles. We empower researchers with sophisticated instruments that spark breakthrough discoveries and generates new insights into the functional dynamics and properties of X-rays, photons, electrons, neutrons and ions.
