eulitha.png EULITHA AG
EULITHA's Extreme Ultraviolet Interference Lithography (EUV-IL) at the PSI Swiss Light Source (SLS) produces extremely tiny and dense periodic nanostructures with resolutions below 20 nm. This production technology can be used for the mass production e.g. of hard disk drives with a one hundred times higher storage capacity compared with the current state of the art, or photonic nanostructures for LEDs and colour displays or for the manufacture of innovative biosensors.

dectris.png DECTRIS AG
DECTRIS is the first company worldwide to sell innovative hybrid-pixel X-ray detector systems which operate in single-photon-counting mode. This new technology features a very high dynamic range, a short readout time and an excellent signal-noise ratio. These properties significantly improve measurement quality and throughput. They can be used in various different areas, such at synchrotron light sources, laboratory diffraction systems or industrial and medical applications.
