From January 1st 2006 SPECS has taken over the product line of the British manufacturer of instruments for deposition in high and ultra high vacuum, Oxford Scientific Ltd.
Oxford Scientific's entire product range is now available directly from SPECS including tools for sample preparation such as RF and microwave, atom, ion and hybrid sources as well as mini e-beam evaporators, hydrogen cracker-cells, e-beam heated effusion cells and RHEED-systems.
The acquisition of the Oxford Scientific product line was the natural progression of years of successful cooperation in which Oxford Scientific instruments were integrated into customized SPECS surface analysis systems and now enables SPECS to offer its customers an even greater range of products from sample preparation to analysis and data acquisition software. With the transfer of production to its extensive facilities in Berlin, SPECS will be better placed to meet the rising demand for these instruments and to optimize their integration into its systems.
Dr. Christian Bradley, founder and chief designer of Oxford Scientific Ltd., will be working closely with SPECS in the future to ensure the ongoing development and success of these products.
