Advanced Microscopy Techniques (AMT) has devoted its design and manufacturing efforts toward the goal of providing excellence in digital camera imaging systems for the TEM.
These systems are sold directly to customers, through domestic and international representatives, and through TEM vendors. With an installed based of over 1100 camera systems, AMT has developed a substantial local and international infrastructure in optics, electronics, software, sales and support. Our use of the best available technologists working together provide excellent customer communication and knowledge. This team approach allows AMT to supply world-class products on a global scale at competitive prices. As a result, AMT enjoys an excellent reputation for reliability and support for both its products and its customers.
No single camera or camera configuration covers every restriction imposed by the TEM or by the user. Life and Material Sciences applications can require similar camera imaging configurations, but must be located in differing positions on the TEM . Therefore, AMT has created numerous options to fit user applications, TEM configurations, and price considerations.
AMT provides the highest performance optics with specially designed finite-conjugate lenses for all our products. We are proud to have pioneered the use of high resolution RESTM phosphors, which minimize electron scattering effects and provide superior sensitivity. AMT offers a complete line of digital imaging capabilities from 2.8 megapixel to 16 megapixel format. All systems provide sharp images with high dynamic range and low noise.

AXIC, Inc. was founded in 1980 as a company to develop surface science equipment for the semiconductor, electronics, and general scientific community. Initial developments focused on x-ray and electron beam analysis of surfaces for compositional and film thickness analysis. These developments lead to the introduction of a stand alone x-ray fluorescence unit which was easily operated by fab personnel for the measurement of film composition and thickness. AXIC, Inc. now produces 3 XRF systems for coatings analysis in both development and production applications for the semiconductor, magnetic, and superconductor industries.
In 1992, AXIC entered the market of producing laser based reflectometers for the measurement of film thickness, index of refraction, and film absorption properties of transparent/translucent films for the semiconductor, optical and magnetics industries.
Shortly after, AXIC commenced the manufacture of plasma tools for cleaning, photoresist stripping, reactive ion etch (RIE), and plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition (PECVD). Today these offerings include the MultiMode HF8, PlasmaStar, and BenchMark 800-II. Units are ideally suited for research and development and small scale productions. The plasma tools can be configured in various ways to meet the end users’ specific requirements.
