MicroSense, LLC, previously known as ADE Technologies, is comprised of three primary businesses precision capacitive sensors, vibrating sample magnetometers and magneto-optical Kerr effect (MOKE) tools for state-of-the-art magnetic measurement and wafer measurment systems. 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.

Advanced Research Systems, Inc. was started in 1986 by Ravi Bains to provide cryogenic solutions for low temperature research. ARS has evolved as a world class manufacturer of closed cycle cryocoolers and laboratory cryogenic systems. ARS is the only major supplier of laboratory cryostats that also manufactures 4 K closed cycle cryocoolers for its use.
Manufacturing our own cryocoolers allows us to seamlessly adapt our cryostats for challenging applications where the cryocooler must be customized for a specific application. ARS has sales and service capabilities worldwide, with an international sales force that is well trained to support our customers and provide guidance in the selection of cryogenic equipment that suits customers’ needs at a fair price.
We recognize that the quality of both our product and our customer relationships determines our future success in this competitive world. To facilitate this, we continue to invest in improving and expanding our capabilities and in developing new products for the future. We feel that the close working relationships we have forged with our customers over the years are testimony to our success.

In 1984, Buck Scientific developed its first new instrument, the Model 200 Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer. Since then, our engineers have continued to develop new instruments based on the philosophy of providing excellent analytical performance and quality at an affordable price.
Our Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometers and Infrared Spectrophotometers are built in Norwalk CT. Both instruments have many happy users. It is very common for people not to need any servicing for 10 or 15 years after purchasing them. They are workhorses built to withstand tortuously corrosive environment like plating shops and mines. The infrared is loved by many around the world who do not have adequate air conditioning to run an FTIR. In these cases we are often their last hope, and the M530 costs about 1/2 the price of an equivalent FTIR, so customers save money and solve their problem at the same time.
