Customized Microscopy Products
Working at the forefront of science sometimes requires completely new instrumentation. attocube is constantly monitoring new trends in research as well as collaborating with some of the world’s leading scientists to support significant breakthroughs with new techniques. This has resulted in many sophisticated material characterization tools, which have provided our customers a competitive edge in their fields.
attocube has gained and maintained a reputation in the scientific community for making almost anything possible. Obviously, this always involves a mutual discussion and agreement about development costs vs. price, level of integration and delivery time. As shown on the following pages, this trade-off has resulted in many outstanding instruments which have directly produced excellent research results, some of which might not have been achieved without attocube’s involvement.
Our cutting-edge systems deliver brand-new technology for tackling some of the hardest challenges of today’s fundamental research, and hence provide their first users with a tangible competitive edge over other researchers by minimizing the ‘time-to-market’ for scientific results – an asset, which grows in importance for hot topics in a global research world. This has been proven by many success stories around our instruments as shown on the pages that follow.
Customized to individual needs
Especially in fundamental research, every experiment is slightly different, and scientists simply like to ‘have it their way’ – making off-the-shelf systems inappropriate. With our cutting edge systems, we try to satisfy even exotic requirements, so that researchers can spend their time on producing results rather than adapting their measurement equipment manually to their needs.
Every measurement system is installed by one of our skilled engineers on site including an extensive training session. But the excellent support extends far beyond that – our experts are available on the phone as well as via remote desktop sessions, and never leave you alone with any open questions around your measurement task.
‘Convenience despite complexity’ – although most of the cutting edge systems are equipped with unprecedented features, we dedicate all of our experience to deliver user-friendly and robust solutions.
Patented positioning technology
At the heart of every measurement instrument, nanopositioning stages based on our patented slip-stick principle provide several degrees of freedom over macroscopic ranges with down to subnm precision.
Variable temperatures & high magnetic fields
All but the dedicated room temperature instruments have been very carefully designed to meet the requirements of cryogenic environments and high magnetic fields by the choice of suitable materials and appropriate mechanical working principles.
