Advanced Light Source selects STOE STADIVARI diffractometer – the most precise four circle XRD- for single crystal high pressure research.

13.04.16 | Allgemein

STOE and Mosaic Distribution (representing STOE in the US) are proud to announce the installation of the first STOE STADIVARI in vertical set-up on the High-Pressure Beamline 12.2.2 at the Advanced Light Source in Berkeley, California.

Beamline 12.2.2 at the Advanced Light Source is a Synchrotron-based Hard X-ray Diffraction beamline specifically aimed at samples under high pressure within diamond anvil cells. The beamline photon energy range is 6-35keV with an x-ray spot size down to 10 x 10 μm.  This research plays an important role in the fields of Earth sciences, materials science, construction materials, chemistry and energy and is funded by the DOE (Department of Energy) and COMPRES (the Consortium for Materials Properties Research in Earth Sciences).

The STOE STADIVARI was selected by Dr. Christine Beavers for 12.2.2 due to its ability to easily mount the heavy high pressure cells (up to 2 kg) and yet maintain its high precision and accuracy. The STOE STADIVARI four circle XRDs have a sphere of confusion of less than 10 µm in diameter / 5 µm in radius (the most precise instrument in the industry). In addition, STOE’s powerful user-friendly software makes high quality data acquisition and analysis remarkably fast.

Dr. Christine Beavers, COMPRES staff at the ALS commented, „We are very excited to be able to offer our users a premiere facility for single crystal high pressure diffraction. The STADIVARI will allow our users to collect many more of the accessible reflections, while maintaining small samples on the center of rotation. We are also very happy to have the Mosaic & STOE teams supporting us; at the ALS, we are very demanding in our pursuit of cutting edge instrumentation and  in this case our expectations have been exceeded.“

Jens Richter, Co-CEO & CTO of STOE commented: “We are happy to have installed the first STADIVARI system in vertical setup on a place like this, where cutting-edge science is done. We are expecting a lot of new ideas and demands, which will help us to improve our hard- and software. Being a focused company, which have all the R&D and production in house enables us to react quickly to user demands and keep us at top of the line with our devices. We are looking forward to a future cooperation with the people from 12.2.2, which will be beneficial for both the ALS and STOE. “

Liz Carter, President of Mosaic Distribution commented, “We are thrilled to have the STADIVARI installed on Christine’s beamline.  We couldn’t ask for a better ambassador and having the system installed in such a demanding and high-profile environment will be a good way to demonstrate the robustness and quality of the system and our ability to support it.”

STOE DECTRIS Xenocs OPENFACTORY: CONTRIBUTING TO THE SPIRIT OF THE IYCR 2014

24.09.14 | News

Twenty crystallographers, representing 15 nationalities, have attended the IUCr-UNESCO OpenFactory, which was sponsored and organized by STOE, DECTRIS and Xenocs, and took place as part of the International Year of Crystallography

The delegates received ten days of intensive training by STOE, DECTRIS and Xenocs staff and guest scientists in cooperation with the IUCr. The opening ceremony was held in Darmstadt on September 10th, where STOE offered a warm welcome to the participants. This was followed by a first lecture in which DECTRIS took the delegates to an exciting journey through the instrumentation for X-ray analysis. From laboratory to synchrotron sources, advances of modern instrumentation were presented on several examples of difficult structures, whose solution was possible only owing to the features of MYTHEN and PILATUS detectors.

In Grenoble, after a fascinating introduction on the history of crystallography and today’s challenges by Jean-Louis Hodeau, Directeur de Recherche at Institut Neel-CNRS, member of the IUCr Synchrotron commission, the delegates received theoretical & practical training on Small Angle X-ray Scattering. Four different workshops were organized at Xenocs Headquarters so that the participants could get in-depth knowledge on Xenocs sources & optics, Xenocs SAXS/WAXS systems and data treatment software, with experiments carried out on the Xeuss 2.0 SAXS/WAXS system.

The delegates also visited the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF) and more specifically the ID02 SAXS beamline.  A sunny week-end spent discovering Grenoble old town and a breathtaking view of the Mont Blanc from the Bastille fortified site ended the first part of the OpenFactory very nicely.

In Darmstadt, the participants were trained in single crystal and powder XRD at STOE’s labs. The training involved one day of theoretical lectures, while two full days focused on hands-on workshops, from sample preparation to structure determination: for x-ray single crystal as well as x-ray powder diffraction. As part of this, the participants performed measurements on the STOE IPDS 2/2T and  STADIVARI Single Crystal Diffractometer, and STADI P and STADI MP Powder Diffractometer.

Thereafter, the participants joined STOE’s Single Crystal User Meeting, which included, among others, talks on Scaling, Indexing and Extreme Conditions Crystallography by STOE’s scientists. Furthermore, Prof. Dr. Dieter Fenske, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, gave an impressive talk on “Nanosized Transition Metal Clusters; Synthesis, Structures and Properties“ followed by Prof. Dr. Harald Krautscheid, University of Leipzig, presenting his fascinating work on Metal-Organic Frameworks.

As a highlight, Prof. Dr. Gautam R. Desiraju, immediate past president of the IUCR, has held his premier speech on “100 years of Crystallography: Seen through 15 small molecule crystal structures” – in which he has illustrated some of the most fascinating developments over a timespan of a century.

The feedback of the participants was overwhelming. Next to all the knowledge being shared, it has been impressive how strong ties have been built among the participants – connecting young crystallographers from across the world in the spirit of IYCr 2014.

Ownership succession secured – Martin Fark becomes shareholder and joins the management team

12.07.13 | News

Following the retirement of Ms. Bärbel Dollmann (former Managing Director) in 2012, the shareholders of STOE set out to find a suitable long-term successor. The main criteria were to find a solution that would secure the independence of STOE and insures that the management of STOE are „managing owners“, i.e. represented in the shareholder structure. 

Fulfilling these requirements, Martin Fark joined the leadership team in July 2013. He assumed the role as Co-CEO & CFO and became shareholder. Martin Fark has a degree in industrial electrical engineering as well as an MBA and is responsible for managing STOE’s Commercial Operations and Sales & Marketing. Jens Richter continues to head the scientific areas as Co-CEO & CTO. “This succession secures that STOE is led with a great sense of ownership that keeps it as customer oriented as you have experienced STOE so far” Jens Richter commented. When asked about his first impressions, Martin Fark added “I am impressed by the strong and loyal, customer base that STOE has build up over its long history. It’s our obligation to keep this spirit alive while at the same time set STOE up for future growth.”
