Part of the Oxford Instruments Group

Welcome to Oxford Instruments NanoScience 

At Oxford Instruments NanoScience we design, supply and support market-leading research tools that enable quantum technologies, nano technology research, advanced materials and nano device development in the physical sciences.

Our tools support research to the atomic scale through creation of high performance, cryogen free, low temperature, and magnetic environments. This is based upon our core technologies in low and ultra-low temperatures, high magnetic fields and system integration, with increasing levels of experimental and measurement readiness.

The company was founded in 1959 as the first commercial spin-out from Oxford University, providing technological innovation for over 60 years now.
