Abstract:
Oxford Instruments NanoScience has been awarded The Queen's Award for Enterprise: Innovation for the development of Triton™200, a cryogen-free dilution refrigerator with an integrated high-field superconducting magnet.

Queen’s Award for Enterprise:Innovation

UK | Posted on April 21st, 2010

The Triton200 is capable of cooling to temperatures near to absolute zero. Innovative new technology was developed to operate without the need for liquid helium, which is a scarce, non-renewable commodity. As a result, relative to alternative products, the Triton200 is more reliable, of lower cost, cheaper to maintain and has greatly reduced delivery times.

Dr Jim Hutchins, Managing Director of Oxford Instruments NanoScience says "Innovation has been at the heart of our company's growth and success for over 50 years, and I am delighted that it continues to flourish. Our focus on listening to our customers and developing tools and systems that they want is reflected in this achievement - and we shall continue to build on this success. This Award recognises the skill and commitment shown by everyone at Oxford Instruments, and particularly the development team of Triton200, and I congratulate them all"

In October 2009, Oxford Instruments NanoScience also won a ‘highly commended', runners up place in the 2009 British Engineering Excellence Awards, in recognition of the product enhancements achieved by the radical design of theTriton200.

As Jonathan Flint, Chief Executive, commented "Oxford Instruments aims to pursue responsible development and deeper understanding of our world through science and technology. This Award is the 9th Queen's Award that the company has won, and is a reflection of our commitment to delivering the tools that are needed to face the great challenges of the 21st Century."
