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.

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 1983, HYPRES has been engaged in the development and commercialization of superconducting microelectronics. Superconducting integrated circuits (ICs) represent a significant advance over existing semiconductor technologies. HYPRES has established world-leadership in superconducting technology and is the premier commercial supplier of primary voltage standard circuits used in metrology laboratories worldwide.
HYPRES was founded in 1983 and has since been active in advanced R&D programs while developing the second generation IC technology for superconductive electronics. This includes a reliable all-refractory niobium IC process that resolves the materials-related issues that had limited progress in the IBM Josephson computer program. In addition, a new logic family is now applied that takes full advantage of the intrinsic properties of superconductors and enables gate speeds approaching 1,000 GHz (770 GHz demonstrated in the laboratory).
The company is located in Elmsford, NY, and includes a complete superconducting integrated circuit fabrication line. The facility is totally self-sufficient and includes thin film and photolithography processing and support functions covering CAD, device testing, and cryogenics development. Our staff is expert in circuit design, circuit fabrication, packaging, and cryogenics. In addition to capabilities in superconductivity, other HYPRES technologies enable advanced microfabrication processes which lead to unique micromachined sensors for the detection of infrared and millimeter wave radiation without cooling.

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).
In diverse areas such as materials characterization, high-sensitivity electrical measurements, and in-lab helium conservation, Quantum Design’s team of scientists and engineers provides a full spectrum of service and application support for customers both domestically and internationally.
Tristan Technologies was first created in 1991 by former principals of San Diego superconducting companies Biomagnetic Technologies (BTi) and S.H.E. Corporation. Tristan Technologies was subsequently sold to ‘Conductus’, Sunnyvale, in 1993, and became its Instrument & Systems Division in San Diego. This division closed in July 1997, and several employees reformed Tristan Technologies in August 1997. As part of the reformation, Tristan acquired from Conductus the rights to the iMAG® product line and associated product lines, and continues to manufacture the iMAG® series LTS and HTS SQUID systems as standard products and as parts of custom cryogenic measurement systems.
The SQUID (Superconducting Quantum Interference Device) is the world’s most sensitive magnetic flux detector. It is often referred to as a cryogenic or superconducting magnetometer, and indeed the measurement of extremely small magnetic fields is one of its most important applications. However, the scope of the SQUID’s usefulness extends far beyond simple field measurements. Almost any low frequency electric or magnetic signal that can be converted into a corresponding magnetic flux signal will be detected at a greater level of sensitivity with a SQUID than with any other instrument. Applications of SQUID systems have ranged from the investigation of magnetic and electronic properties of materials to the search for geothermal energy sources, from studies of paleomagnetism to biomagnetic research and from the measurement of millikelvin temperatures to the detection and characterization of subsurface magnetic structures on land and at sea.
Tristan’s strength is in the design and manufacture of laboratory and custom SQUID systems. Tristan’s standard product line of SQUID instrumentation is the widest available for scientific laboratory applications. Custom SQUID magnetometers supplied by Tristan personnel include the first commercial high temperature SQUID magnetometer and gradiometer, liquid helium scanning SQUID microscopes with 2 µm resolution (the world’s first magnetic microscope) and 100+ channel biomagnetometers for medical applications.
