We are excited to announce that our development team Quantum Design Quantum Design Microscopy has been honoured with the R&D 100 award for our groundbreaking correlative AFM-SEM, the FusionScope®!

Widely recognized in industry, government, and academia as a mark of excellence for the most innovative ideas of the year, the R&D 100 Awards is awarded to the most promising new products, processes, materials, or software developed throughout the world and introduced to the market the previous year.

This recognition underscores our commitment to research and cutting-edge solutions in the field of nanotechnology. We congratualte the entire team for their dedication and hard work in pushing the boundaries of innovation!

Stefano Spagna, VP of Strategy and Innovation, responded, “We are grateful to be the recipient of the prestigious 2023 R&D 100 Award by R&D World magazine. The FusionScope represents Quantum Design’s latest efforts to bring technological innovation to scientific research. The team at Quantum Design saw an opportunity to bring something unique to the field of microscopy – a truly integrated correlative microscope that combined AFM and SEM in a truly cohesive manner by rethinking an instrument from the ground up. We are incredibly proud to be recognized for this

“FusionScope provides the user a completely unique experience for performing correlative microscopy and takes advantage of an innovative shared coordinate system that automatically aligns both AFM and SEM operations for measurements and sample positioning,” stated Chris Schwalb, COO of QD Microscopy. “Seeing the AFM tip in real time and positioning it with nanometer resolution under guidance of the SEM enables experiments that were simply not possible before. We are honored to win this prestigious award.”

Quantum Design will be present at the 2023 R&D 100 Gala Banquet which will be held in San Diego, Calif. on November 16th.
