Do you have a challenging materials characterization project? We have extensive experience in a wide variety of measurement techniques including X-ray Scattering, X-ray Absorption Spectroscopy (XAS), Total-Reflection X-ray Fluorescence (TXRF), and X-ray microscopy. We are also experienced in Inductively-Coupled-Plasma Mass Spectroscopy (ICP-MS), etc.


The Principals of the company are both Stanford-trained Ph.D.s in Materials Science with many years of experience both at the synchrotron and in industry. We look forward to meeting with you and discussing your project.



New! Check out kWx, our latest iPhone application. Lightweight weather app that goes directly to weather.gov and scrapes the .xml file for current temperature and conditions. For a 7-day forecast it presents a text-only description of the weather for the next week. By using only airport locations it avoids having to look up latitude and longitude, for which weather.gov uses a third-party. Pretty much every tower-controlled airport has a weather station as well so you just precede the three-letter airport designator with the letter "K". So O'Hare airport has KORD as its weather station. There are some weather stations that don't have an airport, e.g. KNYC is Central Park. You can add new stations and rearrange the ones you already have.
New! Check out bClk, our iPhone & iPad application. Tired of having apps that scrape your data or upsell you or prompt you for stuff? bClk is just a night clock. No alarms, no flying toasters. Choose how dim you want, choose the digit color, choose 12/24hr format Be sure to plug it in because it does use some power during the night.

Check out DifCal, our iPhone and iPad-based application for calculating diffraction angles on a variety of different kinds of diffractometers including 4Circle, Z-Axis and Theta-Theta.
