Varian's scientific instruments and vacuum technologies, consumable supplies, and solutions are key tools in bio-molecular and academic research, pharmaceutical R&D and manufacturing, and industrial R&D and quality control.
Velocys, Inc. is commercializing revolutionary processing systems, including nanoscale ones, that provide energy companies with new synthetic fuels and chemical companies with substantial capital cost savings, improved product yields, and greater energy efficiencies.
Vendum Batteries Inc. is developing an innovative new cellulose-based power source that in the next few years could help revolutionize the powering of the automotive and aeronautical industries. This revolutionary battery is entirely biodegradable, as it is primarily composed of cellulose and uses none of the toxic elements used in traditional batteries, such as mercury, lead, chromium, or cadmium. Using cutting edge Carbon Nanotube Technology, this non toxic power source, will in the future be capable of providing higher power output, for longer periods of time, and because the batteries can be so small and light weight, it will be possible to revolutionize human implant technology such as pacemakers or cochlear implants.
VeriCold Technologies is specialized in cutting-edge X-ray spectroscopy and cooling solutions. Driven by innovative markets (semiconductor, biotechnology and nanotechnology) VeriCold's technology is a key-enabler for new processes in manufacturing, quality control and research.
Vistec Semiconductor Systems' innovative product portfolio includes inspection systems, defect detection and classification, metrology systems for mask and wafer manufacturing. The electron beam systems are used for microchip production and integrated optics as well as for scientific and commercial research.
Vitex Systems, Inc. is commercializing transparent ultra-thin barrier films for use in the manufacture of next-generation flat panel displays (FPDs). The company's proprietary encapsulation solution (Barix™) as well as its Flexible Glass substrate are landmark developments designed to enable the cost-effective production of organic light-emitting diode (OLED) displays that are lighter in weight and thickness than any other commercially available displays.
A manufacturer of high performance instrumentation for scientific and industrial applications focused on new solutions for Optical and Scanning Probe Microscopy: SNOM (NSOM), Confocal Raman Microscopy, AFM, SPM, PFM.
XOS® has been a leading global provider of advanced X-ray optics for material analysis systems since the optics' commercial introduction in the mid-1990s. The systems are important for essentially all industries that use materials – from cement to semiconductor to pharmaceutical to petroleum – measuring aspects such as semiconductor film thickness, stress in turbine blades, groundwater contamination, and contaminant levels.
