Angstrom Scientific to distribute Attolight q-CL equipment


Company to distribute tools for inline defect inspection and high-end material research in North America

Attolight AG announces the appointment of Angstrom Scientific Inc., as the North American (USA, Canada) distributor of its quantitative Cathodoluminescence (q-CL) equipment range.

It features its automated solution for semiconductor inline defect inspection (Säntis 300) and its high-end material research tools in industrial R&D and academia (Allalin, Mönch). q-CL is a quantitative and non-destructive characterisation method that produces spectroscopic data at the nanoscale and provides a deeper understanding of the structure of materials.

To better reach potential users of this technology, Attolight AG has entered into a distribution agreement with Angstrom Scientific Inc., a leading source for microscopy and spectroscopy products. Samuel Sonderegger, CEO of Attolight AG, was excited at the possibilities this new partnership would provide, “Angstrom Scientific is very well known in the field of electron microscopy and nano-science. Their relationships and history with researchers and institutions in this market will provide new opportunities for q-CL products to reach the people who will benefit most from their adoptions in the lab.”

Bob Sommerville, CEO of Angstrom Scientific Inc., commented, “We are delighted to have the opportunity to work with the Attolight team, and to have the Mönch, Allalin and Säntis 300 spectroscopic CL products in the Angstrom portfolio. As we have gotten to know the management team we have the utmost confidence that we can continue to advance the Attolight presence in the North American market. The requirement to have high resolution defect inspection is only going to continue to grow and Attolight are in an excellent position to address this growing market”.
