Expanding the software R&D capacities in the U.S.

Brno, Czech Republic ̶ August 3rd, 2015 ̶ TESCAN ORSAY HOLDING, a.s. (TOH), a leading global instrumentation company supplier and developer of scanning electron microscopes, focused ion beams, and dual beam systems, today announced the acquisition of AppFive, LLC, an application software and technique development company in the field of charged particle optics.

AXT, TESCAN´s agent in Australia and New Zealand, is pleased to announce that they have recently completed the installation of a TESCAN LYRA Focussed Ion Beam/Scanning Electron Microscope (FIB/SEM) at Curtin University in Perth, Australia, as part of the National Resource Sciences Precint’s Advanced Resource Characterisation Facility. This follows the winning of a competitive tender for the CSIRO, who have collaborated with Curtin University and the University of Western Australia.

During the M&M 2015 to be held in Portland, Oregon, US (August 2-6, 2015) the new TESCAN microscope will be introduced.

At the mmc2015 in Manchester, the new Q-PHASE, a unique Multimodal Holographic Microscope for Quantitative Phase Imaging (QPI) and Life Sciences will be introduced to the scientific community.

The final review of UnivSEM project took a place in Brussels on 12th March 2015. The whole project team, coordinated by TESCAN Brno, s.r.o. presented the R&D outputs to the European project officers. Within the three years of the project duration, three UnivSEM prototypes were introduced and are being commercialized as the part of the TESCAN product portfolio. Several key factors contributed to the project success. Firstly, there was a clear implementation and commercialization plan from the beginning aiming to the market requirements and needs.


Product Focus


The world’s first fully integrated Xe plasma source FIB with SEM enables extremely high ion currents up to 2 μA thus increasing sputtering rate more than 50 times compared to conventional Ga source. This predetermines FERA3 for milling big volumes of materials that were time consuming or impossible so far.
