There are only four of our Helios Hydra DualBeam plasma-focused ion beams (plasma FIB SEM) in the world. This month, the University of Oregon (UO) welcomed the first to be housed at a university or service center in North America. The acquisition promises to further position UO as a key research and testing site for UO researchers and for industrial clients who are able to lease time on the instrument.
“It’s a real win-win-win that will greatly benefit the university, our faculty doing cutting edge research and our students training for high-tech careers using the world’s most advanced tools and technologies available,” – David Conover, vice president for research and innovation, University of Oregon
We have a long-standing collaboration with UO, and this new instrument acquisition model could help keep its research facilities at the forefront of science for years to come.
