Anton Paar TriTec SA (previously CSM Instruments) has been leader in the development of instruments for surface mechanical properties characterization for over 30 years in both research and industrial fields.
CSM Instruments develops, manufactures and sells instruments to characterize mechanical properties of surfaces. We have been the world leader in this market for more than 30 years, first under the name of LSRH then CSEM.
CSM Instruments provides equipment that allows the mechanical characterization of a wide range of surfaces and bulk materials. Adhesion of paints, optical thin films or hard coatings can be defined using one of our Scratch Testers. These span the nano to the macro range to analyze the widest range of materials. Dynamic testing measurements can be performed to define not only the hardness of the material, but also to evaluate the plastic and elastic deformation, the elasticity module, creep and much more. For wear testing we offer the Tribometer, based on the pin-on-disc principle that operates both in the Micro and Nano regime; to record the frictional coefficient and measure the wear volume. Other equipment measures film thickness. Additionally, CSM provides three dimensional viewing capabilities of sample surfaces under most testing regimes.

Applied Multilayers LLC offers next generation optical coating sputtering systems for high quality optical and metal coatings. Our patented Closed Field Magnetron (CFM) sputtering technology is simple, scalable and significantly less expensive. CFM allows multilayered film coatings onto sensitive polymer substrates or plastics which other deposition technologies would consider prohibitive due the elevated plasma temperatures.
You will discover numerous applications such as durable IR coatings, durable visible AR coatings, high laser damage coatings, ophthalmic, electro-chromic and solar absorbers. CFM also readily deposits thin film oxides, nitrides, carbides or pure metals with near bulk film densification with no film stress.

Founded in 2003, Arradiance® combines unique talents in material science, charged particle physics, equipment design, modeling, simulation, vacuum technology, and metrology providing world class application of Atomic Layer Deposition(ALD) and Plasma Enhanced Deposition(PEALD) to the GEMStar XT product line.
With a concentration in Atomic Layer Deposition, charged particle physics and amplification, Arradiance is the first to develop and demonstrate the capability of producing high gain, low noise, and long life micro channel amplifiers. Using Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) materials and equipment, Arradiance offers a new approach to electron amplification devices replacing the legacy traditional lead-glass/hydrogen firing process developed in 1960’s currently used for all state-of-the-art MCP applications.
Arradiance Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) technology enables research in many areas:
MCP (Micro Channel Plate) Electron Amplification
Thermal and Fast Neutron Detection
An energetic, young industry upstart launched in 2009, Colnatec has established new industry standards in the design, development, and manufacturing of innovative, high-performance sensors and electronic instrumentation used in multiple, diverse areas:
Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD)
Solar cell manufacturing (CIGS)
Mobile display (OLED)
Optical Coatings (PVD)
Food packaging (R2R)
High speed electrical devices (MBE)
Architectural glass (In-Line)
Semiconductor wafer processing (CVD).
Through the use of patented and patent-pending technologies, researchers, manufacturers, and system-builders are able to increase the conversion efficiency of photovoltaic films, reduce production and run times and costs, and improve overall performance; it’s ultimately about achieving higher yield. Holder of numerous patents Colnatec received the Department of Energy SBIR Phase I and II awardsfor a self-cleaning process control sensor to be used in manufacturing CIGS solar cells. This sensor extends crystal life indefinitely and enables solar cell manufacturers to achieve cell and module efficiencies well beyond the status quo. Colnatec is also one of about eight winners of the Arizona Commerce Authority Innovation Challenge Grant Program for promoting innovation in the technology sector.
DataPhysics Instruments GmbH was founded in 1997 in Filderstadt, Southern Germany. As a medium-sized, international company we are developing, manufacturing and distributing innovative contact angle measuring devices, tensiometers humidity generators and instruments for characterising disperse material systems.
In many diverse engineering applications the ability of liquids to wet solids affects the quality of the finished products and the integrity/reproducibility of the manufacturing processes. Some important examples of this are the production and application of paints and varnishes, the development and the optimisation of composite materials, the use of adhesives and selection of solvents for engineering materials, and the biocompatibility of medical implants. Reliable analytical data is provided via the precise evaluation of static and dynamic contact angles, the surface free energy of solids and the surface and interfacial tension of liquids. Last but not least, the recent, rapid, advancements in nanotechnology and biotechnology have been possible, only, through an exact knowledge of wetting processes in the sub-microscopic level.
All over the world we are recognized as a responsive, empathetic and reliable partner for customers in a wide range of application fields of research, development and industry, always following the goal of being at the forefront of this fast developing science.
In order to create and improve solutions for surface and interfacial characterisation we work tirelessly and continuously in cooperation with many famous institutes. Due to our wide accessory range we are able to satisfy specific customer requirements and give each device an individual design.
