Materials Science

High quality materials research investigates the relationships between the synthesis, processing, structure, properties, and performance of materials that enable an engineering function. It involves relating the desired properties and performance of a specific material in a certain application to the structure of the atoms and phases in that material through characterization. At ST Instruments we provide a complementary range of surface measurement equipment to accelerate your research in this field.
