Orsay Physics was founded in 1989 by researchers, engineers and specialists in charged particle optics from Paris-Orsay University and started to develop Focused Ion Beam (FIB) columns and systems.
After eight years of experience in developing innovative FIB concepts, Orsay Physics moved into new facilities dedicated to high quality FIB production in Provence.
Our growing success, which comes from our ability to customize our products for dedicated uses, has required a huge investment in new resources. In 2004, our production capacity and R&D activities were increased by the addition of a new building and new equipment,. At the same time, we have an ongoing programme of recruiting qualified staff and optimizing product quality and reliability in accordance with ISO 9001: version 2000.
