    Scienta Scientific has a strong legacy from UK, Sweden and Germany. VACGEN traces its roots back to 1962 in UK, as the first ultra high vacuum (UHV) company. Scienta was co-founded in 1983 by Nobel Prize winner Professor Kai Siegbahn, and has since been the pioneer in advanced electron spectroscopy. Omicron was founded in 1986, and was the first company to commercialise the UHV scanning probe microscope. Sauna Systems was launched in cooperation with Swedish Defence Agencies in 2004. Our heritage is full of innovations and first-to-the-world products, supporting leading scientists, institutions and companies worldwide.
