Customer Interview

Martino Poggio

« Modernizing equipment for education and research is going to be a top priority as it will help us do more research and projects with the innovative equipment of Zurich Instruments. »

Prof. Martino Poggio - Director of the Swiss Nanoscience Institute and Head of the Poggio Lab at the University of Basel.

Customer Interview

Dr. Daniel Jirovec

« The UHFLI is probably the most used instrument in our lab. Almost every setup has one because it's just so versatile and so quick to use. »

Dr. Daniel Jirovec - Postdoctoral researcher at Institute of Science and Technology Austria (ISTA).

Customer Interview

Beckett Colson and Dr. Anna Michel

« A lock-in amplifier offers a convenient way to measure impedance in a continuous flow of water. We can use the impedance change to tell the difference between biological particles - which we hope to see in abundance - and microplastics. »

Beckett Colson and Dr. Anna Michel - Chemical Sensors Lab at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI).

Customer Interview

Prof. Yonuk Chong

« The Zurich Instruments QCCS made it possible to set up and start the measurement of qubits very quickly. In particular, the generation of precise high-frequency signals using double-superheterodyne frequency conversion significantly reduced the calibration burden in the qubit readout and control measurement setup. »

Prof. Yonuk Chong - Professor at Sungkyunkwan University (SKKU) and Director of the Quantum Information Research Support Center (QCenter).

Customer Interview

Andre Maier and Marcus Scheele

« We implemented a characterization method based on asynchronous optical sampling, where the UHFLI Lock-in Amplifier from Zurich Instruments plays an important role. With this technique, we can unravel the intrinsic temporal response of the developed photodetectors in the range of pico- to nanoseconds. »

Dr. Andre Maier and Prof. Marcus Scheele - Physical Chemistry of Nanocrystals group at the University of Tübingen, Germany.

Customer Interview

Nathan Lacroix and Sebastian Krinner

« We use Zurich Instruments' equipment for low-noise and high-resolution control signal generation and for readout with FPGA-based fast signal processing. If we had to build control electronics on a large scale with similar characteristics, that would distract us from our core research activities. »

Mr. Nathan Lacroix and Dr. Sebastian Krinner - PhD student and senior research assistant in the Quantum Device Lab at ETH Zurich.

Customer Interview

Andreas Pauly

« Along with its lock-in amplifiers and impedance analyzers, Zurich Instruments offers brilliant solutions for controlling and measuring quantum processors and is a strong node in the network of actors leading this field. »

Andreas Pauly - Executive Vice President of the Test and Measurement Division at Rohde & Schwarz

Nanotechnology & Materials Science


This research field continually brings new challenges to those who work to build a useful quantum computer or a secure real-world quantum network. Whether you work with superconducting or spin qubits, we provide hardware and software to control and address your system as it scales up to larger sizes.

Measurement techniques in optics and photonics offer powerful strategies to study physical systems over different length and time scales. Our lock-in amplifiers, phase-locked loops, boxcar averagers and their rich feature sets are designed to keep your setup simple, save time, and lead to high-quality data acquisitions.

Characterizing the impedance of new materials or devices requires an instrument capable of measuring impedance precisely, quickly and over a wide frequency range. We offer measurement capabilities that cover four main areas: sensor characterization, dielectrics, semiconductor characterization, and bioimpedance.

With a focus on instrumentation challenges in scanning probe microscopy, we help you perform time- and frequency-domain data analysis to capture and control complex tip-sample interactions with a range of modes and integration possibilities that adapt to your needs.

Our lock-in amplifiers and field-upgradeable options enable you to study material properties at a small scale thanks to fast and low-noise data acquisitions and functionalities that include simultaneous static and dynamic measurements.

To characterize and control sensors that respond to changing environments, we provide a toolset for time- and frequency-domain measurements and feedback control loops within a single instrument.
