AdSem, Inc. is a privately held company established in Palo Alto, CA by a group of highly experienced professionals with outstanding achievements in Semiconductors, Radiation Physics, and Material Science.
Our mission is development and production of novel semiconductor materials, advanced semiconductor devices and unique analytical instrumentation for semiconductor, nuclear, and cryogenic industries.
AdSem is the only company in the world that has developed and produce thermistors for any temperature between 1mK and 500ºC.
Our unique semiconductor NTC thermistors measure temperature of everything and everywhere: in-vivo brain and low- temperature radiometers, semiconductor chips and rocket engines.
AdSem is the only company in the world that offers Ge and Si high reflective mosaic monochromators for slow neutrons, gamma – and X-rays. Our mosaic monochromators have neutron reflectivity higher than any other neutron monochromators .
AdSem has invented and developed high temperature Silicon and Germanium NTC thermistors as well as an industrial technology for their production. AdSem opens a new era in temperature sensing industry by bringing up semiconductor technology into the 70-years old market of ceramic NTC thermistors.
There are fundamental scientific reasons for new Si and Ge thermistors to be the most sensitive and
highly interchangeable over working temperature range.
Their features also are:
Widest temperature range;
Micron Form Factor;
Reproducibility of production technology;
Utilization of microelectronic technology & packaging techniques
New doping technology of Ge and Si, developed by AdSem, allows producing unique low-temperature thermistors with wider operating temperature than any cryogenic thermistors, higher sensitivity in any selected temperature range down to 1mK, higher interchangeability at low- and ultra – low temperature and lower price.
For Neutron and X-ray Optics we developed superior technology for production of large Ge and Si mosaic crystalline monochromators. Our monochromators provide the high reflectivity for slow neutrons, gamma-rays and/or X-rays and any mosaicity value up to 1 arc degree.
The areas of our expertise and new development are also:
Novel PTC & NTC semiconductor thermistors with extended working temperatures;
High resistivity silicon;
Radiation technology and neutron transmutation doping of semiconductors;
Novel nuclear methods for non-destructive selection of high quality large crystals;
Advanced semiconductor nuclear detectors;

Asahi Spectra Co. (ASC) was founded in 1970 in Tokyo, Japan by 3 engineers. ASC has been developing a vacuum deposition technology such as ion assisted deposition (IAD) and ion beam sputtering (IBS) , which achieve hard coating, excellent durability for environment (humidity, low or high temperature, thermal shock or vacuum) and stability of spectral performance. By now our optical filters have contributed in various markets such as astronomy, semiconductor, biotechnology, education and so on.
Nowadays, customer requirements are becoming more complicated as optical innovation advances, and most requirements cannot be satisfied by just optical filter technology. So we have been trying to expand our field to optical instruments based on our 40 years accumulated optical know-how as you can see how professional our optical instruments are.
Our integrated manufacturing process by both filter and instrument specialists is the most competitive advantage against “other only-optical-filter makers”.

EPS has been a leader in application engineering and sales of industrial and pharmaceutical ovens since 1978. Initially a manufacturer’s representative, EPS now offers its own line of batch and continuous ovens for industrial applications. This line supplements rather than competes with the equipment offered by those heat process equipment manufacturers EPS currently represents.
EPS oven systems are installed in the U.S. and in many other countries, including Indonesia, Singapore, Korea, Malaysia, China, Mexico, India, and others.
EPS ovens utilize forced convection for heat transfer. Ovens can be heated electrically or with direct or indirect gas. Sizes range from bench style units measuring 36″ x 36″ x 36″ inside to very large walk-ins. Temperatures range to 1,200 F.
Most EPS ovens are of double wall construction, with blanket type non-settling insulation between the inner and outer skins. Heavy duty plate construction and fiber linings are used for some higher temperature applications.
Only the highest quality components are used in the manufacture of EPS ovens. Control systems are as offered by the most prominent names in the industry, including Partlow, Honeywell, Barber Colman, or as specified by the customer.
