Nova Measuring Instruments Ltd. is a leading global semiconductor equipment manufacturer with solutions and services that are used by 21 of the largest 25 IC manufacturers. Nova's expertise in Thin Film and Optical CD & shape profiling metrology systems are addressing the complex measurement and process control challenges of High Volume Production (HVM) in 300 & 200 mm IC manufacturing, from 90nm to the demanding 45nm and 32nm technology nodes.
Develops and produces innnovative and state of the art devices that facilitate nanotechnology projects. These improvements range from specialized AFM instruments to the probes and sensors used to characterize samples.
Provides instrumentation and consulting for measurement of surface roughness, waviness and shape; layer thickness and optical properties ranging from the sub-nanometer to the cm scales along with surface modification and laser lithography.
Manufacturers of the ActiPix™ range of capillary-based UV absorbance detectors and spectrophotometers for applications including monitoring nanoscale biocatalytic reactions and measuring molecular size of both small molecules and biomolecules.
Particle Metrix supplies instruments and services for particle characterisation and dispersion stability analysis. The focus is on small particles starting from 1 nm upwards or, from nano- and micro - particle dispersions to powders in the µm to mm range. The portfolio of instruments and services is based on own particle charge analysers and particle size and shape analysers from Microtrac Inc. and Occhio S.a.r.l.
The company provide technical support in material characterisation for chemists, biologists, researchers and industrialists in Ireland. They service over 200 companies in pharmachem, minerals, food, pigments and increasingly in research with nanotechnology and biotech at the top of the list.
Phase Focus is bringing to market a range of products and services based on its proprietary Phase Focus Virtual Lens - a disruptive technology that is revolutionising the performance of imaging instrumentation and bringing new user value to a wide range of analytical applications from stain-free cell imaging and quantitative electron phase microscopy to ophthalmic lens metrology and beyond. By eliminating the need for conventional focussing devices, the Virtual Lens enables new applications and novel analytical capabilities in markets as diverse as life sciences and semiconductor process control, and in multiple wavelength regimes - visible light, X-ray, electron, and more.
Photon etc. is at the forefront of optical technology, developing hyperspectral imaging and Bragg grating spectroscopic instruments that work from ultraviolet to infrared. Founded in 2002 by Sébastien Blais-Ouellette, then a Researcher at the California Institute of Technology, Photon etc. is both a research and development company and a specialized manufacturer of photonic measurement and analysis instruments.
The company devotes its resources exclusively to the technology of fluorescence instrumentation and designs, manufactures and markets proprietary electro-optical instruments. Their products are used in leading laboratories around the world for medical research, health care, industrial process, quality control, environmental science and other applications.
Picarro produces ultra-trace gas analyzers for environmental monitoring, automotive emission testing and high-tech manufacturing. Picarro's Cavity Ring-Down Spectroscopy (CRDS) instruments are setting new standards for sensitivity, speed, selectivity and ease-of-use in trace gas detection for monitoring greenhouse gases, reducing diesel emissions, advancing semiconductor manufacturing, and improving petrochemical processing.
PICOCAL is a technology-based venture whose objective is to provide novel measurement solutions to its customers. The company's first product is a MEMS scanning thermal probe that enables users to quickly and clearly view and measure thermal properties at the nanoscale.
The company provides a line of optics and opto-electronic assemblies includes etalons, laser mirrors, beamsplitter cubes, micro-optics, bonded high-power laser optics, and IBS coatings with optics-manufacturing limits to the nanometer level.
