About us

Building on Tascon GmbH’s years of experience as Europe's leading ToF-SIMS consulting firm, Tascon USA brings an unrivaled level of expertise to North America.
Tascon GmbH was founded in 1997 as a testing laboratory specializing in Time-of-Flight Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry (ToF-SIMS).  Since that time, the company has not only developed into an internationally leading laboratory for this technology but has also contributed to its development.  In our lab, you will find a unique combination of state-of-the-art ToF-SIMS instruments and application knowledge. In 2008, we expanded our services to include Low Energy Ion Scattering (LEIS), X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy, and Optical Profilometry. Other characterization methods are offered in co-operation with our partner laboratories.
Tascon has a staff of 15 highly qualified employees with graduate degrees in physics, chemistry, chemical engineering, biology, biochemistry and geology.  Tascon GmbH is an independent, privately owned and operated company.
