VG Scienta is the merger of the former Vacuum Generators and Gammadata Scienta businesses. The inquisitive and methodical approach to problem solving and solution creation that permeates the whole of the natural sciences also permeates operations within the VG Scienta Group. In many respects, VG Scienta represents a link between the academic community and a wide range of businesses, governmental authorities and other research and development facilities across the globe. At the core of any operation dealing with applied surface physics lies extensive research and development. The research results in instrumentation that is highly reliable and meets the varying price and performance requirements that customers have. With a basis in Professor Kai Siegbahn’s Nobel Prize winning ESCA method at Uppsala University, Gammadata has developed, and continues to develop, instrumentation for surface physics measurement systems.
