FEI Selected by India's ICMS to Develop Most Advanced Electron Microscopy Facility in India

HILLSBORO, OR | Posted on July 29th, 2008

India's International Centre for Material Science (ICMS) in Bangalore has selected FEI Company (Nasdaq: FEIC) and its Mumbai-based agent, Icon Analytical Equipment Private Limited, to develop a unique imaging facility. It will be the most advanced electron microscopy facility in India and highlights the global technology leadership of FEI and its products.

The ICMS Imaging Centre will include a suite of FEI electron microscopes, including the world's most powerful commercially-available microscope, the Titan3 ™ 300kV high-resolution Transmission Electron Microscope (TEM). Also included are the Quanta™ 3D Field Emission Gun (FEG) DualBeam™ system and the Tecnai™ 20 200kV TEM. All will be network-connected and remotely controllable.

"The ICMS Imaging Centre, due to be opened in October 2008, will be a unique facility where Indian scientists can cooperate with colleagues from all over the world using the ultimate performance tools available today," said Prof. C.N.R. Rao, National Research Professor, Linus Pauling Research Professor, and Honorary President of Jawaharlal Nehru Centre for Advanced Scientific Research in Bangalore.

"We are honored to be chosen by Prof. C.N.R. Rao and the Indian Dept. of Science and Technology," said Dr. Don Kania, CEO and President of FEI Company. "We are looking forward to this exciting project."

Icon Analytical is FEI's exclusive agent in India. To ensure a quick startup of the Imaging Centre, Icon Analytical will provide installation, training of local staff, initial operation of the facility and maintenance of the tools.

"Icon is proud to install and maintain these market-leading performance tools in India," said Anand V. Rao, Managing Director of Icon Analytical. "It is a privilege to be associated with Prof. C.N.R. Rao and FEI in the field of nanotechnology."
