Scienta Omicron was formed by the merger of two of the most renowned companies in the field of Surface Science: VG Scienta and Omicron NanoTechnology. VG Scienta has a long tradition of building high performance electron spectrometers. The company’s history in electron spectroscopy is based on a close affiliation with the Nobel prize-winning achievements at Uppsala University, and dates back to the early 1980s and the first available systems on the market. Omicron NanoTechnology has been the world’s leading supplier of analytical instrumentation solutions in nanotechnology research and development for decades. We have created innovative instrumentation with state-of-the-art performance and combined analytical tools into sophisticated multi-technique analytical systems. This is the foundation of the “multi-technique” philosophy.

Scienta Omicron is the leading innovator in Surface Science. The company provides top capabilities for the research community through its technology leadership in electron spectroscopy, scanning probe microscopy and thin film deposition. These capabilities are available in custom tailored solutions from one source with worldwide sales and service groups.
