Eastern Applied Research, Lockport NY, USA
Address: 6614 Lincoln Ave., Lockport, NY 14094, USA
Long Business Description:

In 1991, Eastern Applied Research began as a regional service provider for x-ray fluorescence instruments. Technical associates offered on-site certification, consultation, and repair services with a focus on the East Coast of the United States. Those associates realized that most clients were looking for a single source for XRF Technology service and support. So, Eastern Applied added an in-house standards laboratory for standard re-certification and manufacturing of new XRF standards. They also began offering XRF analyzers for their clients testing needs.

In time, through the organizations dedication to offering efficient response times and competitive pricing (an overall dedication to customer satisfaction) the client list grew and demanded additional technical staff be added to support that demand. Expanding the on-site service personal to include representatives to cover Central and Western United States was the next step in the evolution of this complete service provider. Eastern Applied Research has continued to grow over the years and now provides service and support throughout North America – covering Canada and Mexico with bi-lingual service personal as needed.

Eastern Applied’s core technical staff has a complete working knowledge of a wide range of XRF analyzer models and the field staff receives extensive training on each model to insure a satisfactory experience for the client. Sales of XRF analyzers has expanded from just reconditioned systems (used XRF) to include new analyzers from a leader in XRF technology – Hitachi High-Tech. XRF analyzers from Hitachi High-Tech are known for providing the highest reliability and excellent precision for a large number of application interests.

Applications include:
Thickness Measurements
RoHS Testing
Analytical Laboratory
Process Control
Alloy Analysis
Geological Testing

Long Business Description:

Solar cell materials can be assessed by spectral and temporal fluorescence spectroscopy using the products offered by Edinburgh Instruments.
The energy received on earth by the sun in one hour is equivalent to the energy consumed by the world in a year. Photovoltaic solar cells convert this solar energy into electricity in a sustainable way compared to fossil fuels.
Solar cells can be made of semiconductors, polymers, dyes and phosphors. Organic as well as organic/inorganic approaches are currently followed.
Research is focussed on materials that absorb a wider part of the solar spectrum, while improving the electronic transport at a low cost. In addition, charge mobility and stability are challenges especially for dye-sensitised and perovskite solar cells.

The fluorescence emission, quantum yield and lifetime of nanoscale materials can be characterised with a range of Edinburgh Instruments’ products.
Nanoscale materials such as quantum dots, carbon nanotubes, nanoparticles and nanostructures exhibit strong spatial confinement upon photo-excitation and tuneable emission, which makes them extremely useful in photonic applications.
Emission at desired wavelengths has been widely demonstrated in the past, however research is currently focused on improving the quantum yield as well as the photo-stability and chemical stability for example in core/shell geometries. New materials are investigated in the zeroth dimension in dots, the second in sheets such as graphene, or the third in nanostructures, whereas applications from optoelectronic devices to medical diagnostics and quantum computing.

Microhardness measuring instruments :
Industry demands that surfaces and coatings are engineered to be very hard, extremely thin or visco-elastic thus requiring powerful measurement methods and systems.
Fischer provides quick, precise and effective measurements of mechanical properties (hardness, modulus, creep, etc.) of micro and nano scale coatings, components, cross-sections, treated and modified surfaces.

Material Testing:
The measurement technology of Fischer is sought after and proven when the quality of weld seams is measured in steel constructions or the sealing is determined on anodized facades. This is also true when the coatings are tested on tanks or airplane aluminum structures for fatigue.

Freiberg Instruments GmbH, Freiberg, Germany
Address: Delfter Str. 6, D-09599 Freiberg, Germany
Long Business Description:

Freiberg Instruments is now one of the world’s fastest growing, young and dynamic analytical instrumentation companies with products covering a broad spectrum of applications in fields/industries like Semiconductor, Microelectronics, Photovoltaic, Dosimetry, Medical Research, Luminescence Dating, X-ray diffraction, Material Research and Electron Spin Resonance.

Established in 2005 as an university spin off from TU Bergakademie – The University of Resources, Freiberg Instruments devoted the first few years to develop and test a whole family of fast, nondestructive, electrical characterization tools under production conditions, measuring parameters like minority carrier lifetime, photoconductivity and resistivity.

MDP Microwave-Detected Photoconductivity:
The advanced method MDP is well suited for both, defect investigation by e.g. injection dependent minority carrier lifetime measurements, as well as mapping of wafers or even ingots for inline metrology. MDP has a variety of advantages in sensitivity, speed and resolution.

MD-PICTS:
MD-PICTS is a modification of MDP, where temperature dependent measurements of the defect part of the transient are accomplished. This allows to do a spatial resolved defect characterization.

Long Business Description:

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.
