Leading components and systems for surface preparation and analysis

SPECS leads the way in state-of-the-art technology, cutting-edge components, compact and individually designed systems for surface analysis. SPECS Surface Nano Analysis GmbH headquarters are situated in the center of Germany’s capital Berlin.

SPECS has been founded in 1983. In the early days the focus has been the development of peripherical hardware and software to control scientific experiments. After taking over the technology from Leybold in 1990 the company shifted its focus to surface analytical equipment. Now, 30 years and many technical developments later SPECS is the world-leading german company for surface analysis. The scientists and engineers in the company are - via SPECSGROUP - embedded in a global team of more than 130 employees designing, producing, selling and maintaining instruments for surface science, material science and nanotechnology. SPECS continuously innovates new state-of-the-art instrumentation for your research.
