Zurich Instruments AG (Stand 4)

Zurich Instruments makes lock-in amplifiers and phase-locked loops that have revolutionized instrumentation in the high-frequency and ultra-high-frequency ranges by combining frequency-domain tools and time-domain tools within each product. This reduces the complexity of laboratory setups, thus removing sources of potential problems and so allows researchers to focus on their experiments. The new MFLI instrument for low-frequencies makes these advantages available to a wider range of users.


Sigma Surface Science (Stand 5)

SIGMA Surface Science specialises in the field of materials analysis and characterisation, with a focus on the development and production of instruments for UHV SPM and ESCA technology.
