Lambient Technologies LLC, based in Boston, Massachusetts, develops instruments, sensors, and software for monitoring the dielectric properties of curing polymers. These properties provide unique insights into the chemistry, formulation, reaction rate, viscosity, and cure state of epoxies, polystyrenes, polyurethanes, silicones, SMC, BMC, and other types of thermoset materials.
Dielectric cure monitoring, or Dielectric Analysis (DEA), has wide application in research and development, quality assurance and quality control, and manufacturing.
Lambient Technologies' products are designed for flexibility and ease of use. Together they form an integrated system for studying polymers and optimizing manufacturing processes.
Lambient Technologies was founded in 2008 by members of the team that commercialized products by Micromet Instruments, a Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) spin-off that pioneered the technology of dielectric cure monitoring in the 1980s. Since then, members of our team have developed dielectric cure monitoring products for Metrissa/Holometrix and Netzsch Instruments, giving us more experience in this technology than any other company in the field.
LASER-VIEW TECHNOLOGIES, INC. was founded in 1999 as an integrator of precision laser micrometers, laser displacement sensors, and machine vision into smart and easy to use non-contact measurement and inspection systems. We specialize in laser based thickness, distance, and diameter measurements, as well as specialized dimensional profiling. Our vision systems are used in parts sorting, production monitoring, testing, and parts identification. LASER-VIEW TECHNOLOGIES is a certified integrator for DVT/Cognex vision systems, as well as a skilled integrator of National Instruments products. We develop software applications using LABVIEW by National Instruments.
Most of the systems we provide combine specialized smart software and controls with the measurement sensors. We can customize any software and control system to your specific needs. Our systems can be modular, stand-alone, and/or integrated into existing production processes. We serve many industries ranging from laboratory testing to heavy industry and consumer goods. Examples are sheet rubber mfg, wood mfg, paper production, machined parts, tube mfg, packaging, laboratory testing, and consumer products. Our staff is skilled in a broad range of areas so that we can maintain control of the complete system design and building process.

Extrel is the world's leading manufacturer of Research and Process Mass Spectrometers, Residual Gas Analyzers (RGA's), Quadrupole Mass Spectrometry Systems and Components.
Since 1964, Extrel's instruments have been recognized for their exceptional performance, reliability and flexibility, and are complemented by the most comprehensive application, technical and on-site support in the industry. Providing solutions for the needs of today's leading researchers from individual components to full all-in-one systems, Extrel works with their customers to deliver the best product for their needs.
Extrel's focus on the serviceability of their instruments is second-to-none, delivering thorough and comprehensive technical support and service on a worldwide level through on-site and remote support. The company also provides in-depth training through their Support Schools, customer-site training, and Webinar Classes, allowing customers to build a training curriculum that is right for them. The company's analytical and process instruments have been applied in both research and industry—used by Nobel Laureates and thousands of others in a variety of applications worldwide.
Scientists involved in the study of Materials Research are analyzing the surfaces, structures and properties of various materials for many industries. This requires the use of a Mass Spectrometer with not only high sensitivity and resolution, but also precise ionization control and energy analysis capabilities. Extrel provides the MAX and the MAX-LT Systems specifically designed for Materials Research applications. These systems enable the users to find contaminants and atomic scale defects, and provide information about the physical and electronic properties of a surface.
We previously offered a range of microscopes from a German inventor. We are now no longer offering these microscopes as the inventor, who is now 80 years old, has told us he can no longer supply them to us.
He specifically requested us to remove his name and existing products from our website, which we have done to respect his privacy. We wish to thank him for all he has done in the past including his development work on the series of microscopes we have been offering in the past.
Effective August 2014, Grayfield Optical is now working with the inventor's engineering team, who have been working with the same microscope technology for decades, are considerably younger and fully up-to-date with the latest microscope technologies including the latest digital measurment systems. Our nano-positioning system was developed by this team, for example.
We are now preparing to release an entirely new series of microscopes, under the SeeNano name, which enables us to provide you with microscopes that have all the capabilities of the previous series, while adding fluorescence capabilities and realistic pricing. Development work is progressing well and we have started to get into the costing phase so that we are able to price these new microscopes.
