Introducing Impulse 1.0

Intuitive In Situ experiment control and automation software.

Impulse 1.0 software gives researchers complete control over their stimuli. With Impulse, you can easily design your In Situ experiment from your desk. Decide which sample conditions you want to be met at which time and Impulse will do the rest.

During your TEM experiment, Impulse will automatically control the sample environment while you focus on the results. Your experiment design is stored so that you can reliably reproduce your results.

For teams

Impulse is specifically designed with research groups and user facilities in mind. Are you leading a research group with long term projects involving multiple researchers? Impulse makes it easy to design, save and share experiment workflows so that the study can seamlessly continue and evolve.

If you are responsible for a multi-user TEM facility, you want to work with Impulse. Impulse has an intuitive user interface that allows control over multiple DENSsolutions In Situ systems. So researchers can start performing a wide variety of experiments using stimuli like heating, biasing and gas in no time.

Features and benefits

1. Smart automation

Easily design your experiment with the drag-and-drop profile builder. During the experiment, you can focus on other things while smart automation keeps track of the measurements and ensures that the programmed sample conditions are met.

Thanks to its high reliability, smart automation enables you to accurately reproduce your experiments. This allows you to do multiple iterations, testing a wide scale of stimuli variations to discover which parameters are crucial to the process you want to understand.

2. Flexible dashboard

During your experiment, it is crucial to have instant access to the right information. Impulse gives you great flexibility in arranging and resizing the graphs so that you will never miss a thing.

There is no limit to the amount of data you can display on the experiment dashboard. This gives you a complete status overview and allows you to quickly find correlations and make real-time decisions.

3. Data integration

Synchronize your stimuli data with other data from your experiment and provide your camera and detector images with stimuli annotations in seconds.

*Currently compatible with TVIPS and Gatan software.

What customers say

” Impulse is very intuitive and user friendly. The interface is simple yet most effective – allowing simultaneous control of temperature and bias at the flick of a switch, including set up, acquisition and recording.

This is the type of tool that helps you to carry out the experiment that you WANT to do, rather than the experiment you are ABLE to do. Way to go, DENSsolutions.”

Prof. María Varela del Arco
Complutense University Madrid
“Impulse allows me to streamline my workflow. With it, I spend less time setting up my experiments and more time actually doing them, whether it is heating, biasing or both.

The customization options mean I can easily control the inputs exactly as I want, whilst also letting me choose what data is fed back to me.”

Dr. Jonathan Peters
University of Warwick

“The new DENS stub is very useful when making samples for in-situ TEM heating and biasing experiments. The refined copper clamping system makes it easy to mount the chip in a safe way, while it is grounded at the same time to prevent charging.

By using the angle of 45 degrees it is possible to finish a complete sample in one go without the system having to be aerated. So I am also very satisfied with this stub that makes work easier for me.
