Equipment for material research and analysis of substances Fundamental research is essential to further progress in understanding bio-chemical processes and scientific matter in general. The equipment manufacturers (OEM’s) of the required analytical instruments target to enable these researchers to explore and understand molecular structures and bio-processes in ever more detail, up to atomic level – static & dynamic – e.g. to develop better medicines. VDL ETG understands the challenges involved for the development and manufacturing of the required equipment and can contribute significantly to the OEM in realizing his new equipment, notaby in the area of fragile substrate handling, creating a Ultra High Vacuum conditions, and the creation of cryogene mini-environments. Also, VDL ETG has extensive experience in the field of particle accelerator technology for the purpose of materials research.
