ORION™ Helium Ion Microscope Wins Awards from Semiconductor International and R&D Magazines

ZEISS Revolutionary Helium Ion Microscope Wins Two More Prestigious Awards

SAN FRANCISCO, CA | Posted on July 19th, 2008

Carl Zeiss SMT yesterday was presented with a 2008 Editors' Choice Best Product Award from Semiconductor International magazine in recognition of the revolutionary break-through performance of its ORION™ Helium Ion Microscope. The Best Product Awards are presented annually to acknowledge those products that deliver the level of excellence needed to succeed in today's and tomorrow's semiconductor industry, based on comments that come directly from the semiconductor industry customers themselves. "We congratulate Carl Zeiss SMT for supporting the needs of the semiconductor industry with advanced microscopy technologies like the ORION™ Helium Ion Microscope," said Laura Peters, editor-in-chief of Semiconductor International.

The Best Product Award was presented in San Francisco during the 2008 Semicon West exhibition where the latest technologies and products used by manufacturers of semiconductor and photovoltaic devices are introduced and demonstrated.

In addition, the ORION™ Helium Ion Microscope recently was named to receive an R&D 100 Award from R&D magazine. "The winning of an R&D 100 Award signifies that the product was judged to be one of the most technologically significant products introduced into the marketplace over the past year," said Tim Studt, editor-in-chief of R&D magazine. "We congratulate Carl Zeiss SMT for maintaining its track record of being a powerful, continuing contributor of advanced technology to the world's scientists and engineers."

The R&D 100 Award is due to be presented to Carl Zeiss SMT at a formal awards banquet at Chicago's Navy Pier in October.

"These awards are a great honor for us," said Dr. Dirk Stenkamp, Member of the Board of Carl Zeiss SMT AG. "They signal to us that we are on the right track, developing and refining technologies that become powerful, new products to help the world of science see, analyze and understand things as never before possible. It gives us great satisfaction that our work is valued and appreciated, but it also challenges us to keep moving forward, creating new tools to help conquer new frontiers in nanotechnology."

The ZEISS ORION Helium Ion Microscope earlier had won two awards:

* The Wall Street Journal, Technology Innovations Award in 2007
* The Carl Zeiss, Innovation Award in early 2008
