Twente Solid State Technology (TSST) was founded in 1998 as a spin-off company from the University of Twente, and offers high quality thin film solutions. As a result TSST products can now be found around the world.
TSST wants to contribute to the progress in the worldwide scientific community of advanced thin film materials by providing state-of-the-art deposition equipment, with focus on pulsed laser deposition, and developing and sharing relevant expertise
The company is specialised in design and production of customised thin film deposition equipment, specifically Pulsed Laser Deposition equipment for advanced studies. An example is the use of Reflection High Energy Electron Diffraction (RHEED) under high-pressure conditions, which gives real-time information about the surface morphology during depositions.
Every system can be controlled through a central console, giving full control of all parameters involved. This allows the rapid replication of settings and depositions, which results a higher reliability in less time.
Apart from the equipment, the company also produces ceramic thin films, and offers services for research in the field of ceramic thin films, such as the surface treatment of ceramic substrates. TSST is able to provide these services due to the strong cooperation with the MESA+ institute at the University of Twente.
Nor-Cal serves Industrial and Academic Research.
Nor-Cal Products, Inc. was incorporated in 1962 and began fabricating stainless steel flanges, fittings, and custom components exclusively for the then emerging vacuum industry. Nor-Cal’s knowledge of welding, machining, forming and cleaning stainless steel allowed us to quickly become the premier supplier to equipment manufacturers and national laboratories. Nor-Cal coauthored the specification for vacuum fittings at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory that became the standard for vacuum component manufacturers. Our ability to provide consistently high quality and on-time deliveries of OEM components made us the preferred supplier for pump bodies, vacuum chambers and other vacuum subassemblies.
Nor-Cal continued to work with end users on vacuum research systems, while developing our own product lines including foreline traps, isolation valves and electrical feedthroughs. In 1978 we released our own product catalog. During 1997 Nor-Cal began a research and development program for downstream pressure control valves and controllers. Our most recent catalog contains over 4,000 standard items for almost every vacuum application. Thanks to the vision of our late CEO, Craig Hill, Nor-Cal has developed into a world-class manufacturer, providing the highest quality vacuum components, engineered solutions and technological leadership.
Nor-Cal has long been regarded as an anchor in the vacuum community. We are long time supporters, sponsors or members of the Association of Vacuum Equipment Manufacturers (AVEM), American Vacuum Society (AVS), Society of Vacuum Coaters (SVC) and Semiconductor Equipment and Materials International (SEMI).
Over the years Nor-Cal’s customer base has been drawn from all segments of the vacuum industry. Our components are used in almost every phase of semiconductor processing. We are a preferred supplier to several semiconductor and compound semiconductor equipment manufacturers. We also supply mechanical contractors during fab construction. Industrial and academic researchers are frequent purchasers of standard, modified standard and custom components for physical, chemical and electrochemical experiments. Other customers who have come to value our experience are instrument manufacturers of surface analysis equipment, thin film deposition system manufacturers for solar or industrial coatings, laser device manufacturers and aerospace industries.

UIC, Inc. was established by Jerold Armstrong in 1965 as a manufacturer’s representative firm and has grown into a full manufacturing and R&D facility.UIC manufactures coulometric carbon and sulfur analysis systems, vapor pressure osmometers, and kinematic/dynamic viscosity systems.
Products and Markets:
The primary products for UIC are the coulometric carbon analysis systems. These systems are used extensively by the university, geological, oceanographic, petroleum and cleanliness verification markets. The carbon analysis systems have the ability to determine total carbon (TC), total organic carbon (TOC), total inorganic carbon (TIC) and surface carbon (SC) in solids, liquids, slurries and gases.
The coulometric detection system operates on the principles of Faraday’s Law and provides calibration free analysis of practically any material. Typical analysis times range from 5 to 8 minutes utilizing sample sizes from 10ug to 3g. The detection range for these systems is 10ug to 100mg of carbon per sample. This translates to an effective analytical range of 10ppm to 100% and will provide relative standard deviations below 0.2% when analyzing standard materials.
The osmometers are used primarily in the university and polymer manufacturing markets as a way to determine average molecular weights of soluble polymers from 100 to 1,000,000 Dalton.
The viscosity systems are used to determine kinematic viscosities of Newtonian fluids in the range of 0.3 to 100,000 centistokes.
UIC is dedicated to providing superior service and innovative solutions to our end-users needs. We maintain two research and development laboratories, an experienced product development staff, a fully equipped service department and a state-of-the-art machine shop to meet the ever changing needs of our customers.
UIC will strive to improve our already excellent customer support system and enhance our reputation as a world leader in instrumentation and pump technology.
