Long Business Description:

XiGo Nanotools particle technology measures the particle liquid interface of suspensions without dilution, providing a sensitive tool for research and development as well as quality assurance.

You don’t have to be a “nanotechnologist” in order to generate meaningful results. Our software is designed so that measurements can be performed with little operator training, making our technology accessible to R&D and QC/QA/in-Process applications.

Xigo’s patented technology is based on nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and, although small in size, functions as a portable NMR machine, capable of a wide range of standard NMR tests in addition to surface area measurements.

Xigo seeks to provide devices that help scientists, researchers and corporations improve the performance of nanomaterials ushering the transition of these materials from the research laboratory to commercial applications.

Until the company was sold in November, 2009, we were a subsidiary of KLA-Tencor Corporation, a leading global supplier of semiconductor wafer defect inspection and metrology tools. MicroSense serves a host of industries including semiconductor equipment, data storage, machine tool, solar, automotive and high brightness LED.
MicroSense provides capacitive sensors and OEM metrology modules, based on patented capacitive sensing technology, to make very precise, high bandwidth measurements of precision products such as solar wafers, sapphire wafers, hard disk drive motors, air bearing spindles, precision X-Y stages, optical disks, automotive parts and machine tools. Our capacitive displacement sensors provide the highest resolution in the industry, less than 0.05 nanometers, exceptional stability and virtually unlimited service life.
MicroSense offers high-sensitivity wafer measurement tools for characterizing sapphire, silicon carbide and various types of semiconductor wafers. MicroSense acquired SigmaTech, Inc. of Tempe, Arizona in June, 2012. With this acquisition, MicroSense added leading-edge wafer inspection tools to its portfolio of innovative metrology solutions. SigmaTech systems integrate multiple sensing technologies such as optical spectrometry, interferometry and SigmaTech’s patented auto-positioning back pressure (APBP) technology.

Mark Bernick founded Angstrom Sciences, Inc. in 1988 to supply advanced magnetrons and refined materials for plasma vapor deposition of high quality thin films. With a strong focus on research and development, the company soon patented several technical advancements in magnetics, water-cooling, and circular magnetron target clamping designs.

Magnetron sputtering technology has been utilized in production applications for several decades. The basic technology used to control process plasma within the deposition process is well established within the field; however the capabilities available to optimize process efficiencies, such as thin film uniformity, target utilization, and deposition rate, are continuously evolving.
Angstrom Sciences is focused upon the development of magnetron sputtering cathodes that optimize sputter process performance. The Angstrom Advantage™ is the collective set of technical and structural advancements Angstrom Sciences has designed into its magnetrons in order to provide its clients with the most control over their thin film deposition process
Angstrom Sciences strives for all our customers to have complete satisfaction with our products. We offer a 2-year warranty against defects in workmanship and materials on all our magnetrons, which is the longest in the industry. We offer unlimited post-sale support to all our customers. With over 25 years of experience in the industry, we have a wealth of knowledge not only on magnetrons, but the processes they are used in. We feel it is important to share this knowledge with our customers, so that they are successful. We feel that our continued success is driven by that of our customers

We use only the highest qualtity materials, design and manufacturing techniques in order to provide the best possible product. Our in-house manufacturing capabilities along with a full-scale R&D and test lab give us the ability to fully control design development, manufacturing, and pre-shipment testing for on-time deliveries.

Long Business Description:

Hyper Tech is the world leader in manufacturing and R&D of magnesium diboride and niobium tin superconducting wire and integrated products. Hyper Tech’s innovative, patented wire drawing process enabled the company to be the first to manufacture viable long-length MgB2 wire. Hyper Tech has consistently integrated this technology into transforming products benefiting from superconducting materials. Superconductors carry high current with near zero ohmic loss. In coil form, such as in an electromagnet, a charged and closed loop can carry current, and hence magnetic field, for long periods of time (of the order of months to years depending on the detail design). This makes a superconductor ideal for high field magnets. It is commonly used in MRI and nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) systems throughout the world. Hyper Tech is well equipped to produce two wire formed superconductors: MgB2 and Nb3Sn.

Science applications include particle bending magnets, high energy physics (HEP), and magnetic confinement fusion energy.

Since its inception in 1982, Quantum Design International (a privately held corporation) has developed and manufactured automated temperature and magnetic field testing platforms for materials characterization. These systems offer a variety of measurement capabilities and are in widespread use in the fields of physics, chemistry, biotechnology, materials science and nanotechnology.
Building on its expertise in the global marketing and distribution of its own scientific instruments, Quantum Design International (QDI) eventually broadened its scope to distribute quality scientific instruments from other manufacturers through an international network of wholly owned subsidiaries in every major technological center around the world.
With offices in the USA, Japan, China, India, Korea, Taiwan and Brazil, as well as thirteen European countries, QDI is strategically located in the world’s key centers for scientific research, providing local marketing, sales and technical support. More information on QDI’s worldwide distribution business may be found at www.QD-International.com.
Quantum Design Inc. (QD) is the manufacturing arm of QDI. Located in San Diego, California, QD is the leading commercial source for automated materials characterization systems incorporating superconducting technology. QD instruments may be found in the world’s leading research institutions, and have become the reference standard for a variety of magnetic and physical property measurements. Quantum Design Inc. instruments are cited in, and provide the data for, more scientific publications than any other instrument in the fields of magnetics and materials characterization. This means that each year, literally hundreds of scientific publications, advancing the science of materials, use data generated from QD instruments.
Recently, Quantum Design Inc. expanded its product line beyond material characterization, to include instruments such as: a compact IR Crystal Furnace for the creation of new material; a Superconducting High-Gradient Magnetic Separator (SHGMS) for the processing and improvement of Kaolin clay; and a full line of Advanced Technology Liquefiers (ATL) and Helium Recovery Systems for the conservation and recycling of helium (a vital and increasingly scarce resource essential for cryogenic research and instrumentation).
