Instrument Makers Team for Tech Development
LIESTAL, Switzerland, March 10, 2011 — Nanosurf, a maker of atomic force and scanning tunneling microscopes, and Zurich Instruments, a provider of lock-in amplifiers and phase-locked loops (PLL), have developed a strategic technology partnership.
The two companies have agreed to cooperate in the development of high-frequency, high-performance scanning probe microscopy (SPM) products, to provide interfaces between their equipment, to share application expertise and to perform joint promotion activities in some markets. In particular, Nanosurf will propose Zurich Instruments’ high-performance 50-MHz PLL as an upgrade path to its successful easyPLL and easyPLL plus platform, thereby granting Zurich Instruments immediate access to its large community of PLL users. Nanosurf will continue to develop SPM controllers for its products, which will feature compatibility with Zurich Instruments’ PLLs.
