Let us serve your needs


High End Low Temperature
Atomic Imaging, Spectroscopy and Manipulation

We offer state-of-the-art equipment and tools for surface science, thin film deposition, and materials research and development. If your needs touch the areas of Molecular Beam Epitaxy (MBE), Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD), or low-temperature scanning probe microscopy (LT-STM), we are here to help.

We offer individual components suitable for the integration of existing systems, and complete custom systems for research and industry.

We cover the following areas, but are also able to offer custom solutions and bespoke engineering, made in Germany:

Thin Film Deposition and processing

  • Deposition sources: Thermal effusion cells - cryogenic to 2200 ºC
  • Customized turn-key systems for thin film deposition and processing: MBE, PLD, sputter deposition
  • Material deposition: Metals, oxides, organics (OLED), etc
  • System and process automation: Components and software for full process control, cluster tools, complex sample transfer and handling robotics, from manual to fully automatic
  • RHEED, QCM, beam flux measurement

Surface Analysis Equipment

  • Scanning Probe Microscopy (LT-STM, LT-AFM)
  • Cryostats for LT-STM
  • Sample manipulators and holders
  • Sample and wafer transfer
  • Precision motion automation options
  • A multitude of sample holder options
  • System automation

Made in Germany, at Your Service in the Americas

We focus on providing our North and South American customers in Science and Industry with leading technology from our mostly German partner base, and we select our partners very carefully, based on a number of rigorous criteria to give you the very best possible experience.

Together with our partners we have extensive scientific capability and experience designing and building fully customized turnkey MBE and UHV systems and components for LT-SPM and surface spectroscopy, and integrating them with existing research apparatus, such as commercial systems, custom solutions or synchrotrons.

Since we are not beholden to any one instrument manufacturer, we are able to integrate best-in-class instruments and components to build your ideal system, whatever your application may be. We are here to help you get the best for your budget, and the best for your research.
