PLAINVIEW, N.Y., July 18 -- Veeco Instruments Inc. has acquired ThermoMicroscopes, formerly a subsidiary of Thermo Electron Corp. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed. ThermoMicroscopes, which will now be called TM Microscopes, manufactures atomic force microscopes, scanning probe microscopes (AFMs and SPMs), near-field optical microscopes and probes. TM Microscopes is based in Sunnyvale, Calif., and had 2000 sales of approximately $14 million.
