Queensgate Instruments was founded in 1979 and span out from a ground-breaking research programme at Imperial College, London.
Queensgate Instruments quite literally "wrote the book" on Nano-positioning taking the idea from the lab to a cynical world who believed it couldn't be done with the required level of accuracy.
The book "The Nano Positioning Book" by Thomas Hicks defined the need for stringent use of words such as "precision" and "accuracy" and these definitions are still upheld today as the only way to describe the performance of Nano-positioning systems.
Early products amazed the scientific and industrial world as Queensgate Instruments proved that not only was it capable of applying its thought leading research into real products, but that the products themselves could play a huge part in the development of industries including Bio Technology, Medicine, Astronomy, Aerospace, Semi-conductors, Mass Computer Storage Devices and Optics.
