Founded in 1982, Quantum Design is a privately held corporation that develops and markets automated temperature and magnetic field testing platforms for materials characterization. These systems offer a variety of measurement capabilities and are in widespread use in the fields of physics, chemistry, biotechnology, materials science and nanotechnology. A broad product line allows Quantum Design to address the scientific and operational requirements of researchers around the world.
Benefiting from its depth in instrument design and manufacturing, Quantum Design (QD) has become the leading commercial source for automated materials characterization systems incorporating superconducting technology. These instruments may be found in the world’s leading research institutions, and have become the reference standard for a variety of magnetic and physical property measurements. QD instruments are cited in, and provide the data for, more scientific publications than any other instrument in the fields of magnetics and materials characterization. This means that each year, literally hundreds of scientific publications, advancing the science of materials use data generated from QD instruments.
In diverse areas such as materials characterization, high-sensitivity electrical measurements, and defense-related magnetic anomaly detection, Quantum Design’s team of scientists and engineers provides a full spectrum of service and application support for customers both domestically and internationally.
With offices in Japan, China, Korea and India, as well as throughout Europe, Quantum Design has established strong technical support operations in the world’s major technology centers. We have extended the use of our direct international operations to other manufacturers of scientific products and instrumentation. This strategy allows us to keep pace with new developments, while allowing us to more fully serve the needs of researchers beyond our own in-house capability.
