What our customers say:
"PI-KEM provided friendly, efficient, professional service throughout"
"We needed a supplier of high quality Si(100) wafers for experiments related to single atom manipulation using a scanning tunnelling microscope (STM). We achieved single atom resolution of hydrogen-passivated Si(100) samples, and desorbed individual hydrogen atoms using the STM. PI-KEM provided friendly, efficient, professional service throughout. We chose to work with PI-KEM from previous experience with the company, and recommendations from colleagues."

"...variety of items and services they offer, attention to detail and needs of customers"
"Initially I contacted PI-KEM to buy wafers. I have since gone on to purchase sputter targets, wafer boxes, and most recently, quartz boats. We regularly use these wafers for training and fabricating, they yield consistent results. We like that PI-KEM supply reliable products, have helpful staff and provide competitive prices. We chose PI-KEM because of the variety of items and services they offer, attention to detail and needs of customers."

"PI-KEM is simply our number one choice"
"Our lab has used PI-KEM Spin Coaters and Si Wafers for SU-8 photolithohraphy for around 10 years and we are extremely happy with the service. The Spin Coaters are robust, suitable for everyday use and are easy to maintain. We have a long-standing relationship with PI-KEM and they are simply our number one choice when it comes to spin coating equipment and consumables."
