Welcome at THATec Innovation!

Our motivation is to help you to focus on the essential: your research.


The lab automation framework thaTEC:OS is the most versatile solution for any research lab! Easily control any number of devices on any number of PCs. Never forget to note down any device setting any more with the integrated labbook. Keep track on all your measurements via a measurement database. Future-proof by using the open-source data format HDF5.

Custom built microscopes

Our custom built microscopes are ready for your lab! Brillouin light scattering, Raman scattering, NV center, time-resolved Kerr effect or maybe fluorescence microscopy? No problem! Wether you want to upgrade your system or build a new one from scratch. Get us involved from the beginning and profit from our experience. We will design the whole beam path from the laser to the detector and set up everything right in your lab!

By scientists for scientists

aving worked and graduated in basic research, we know the small and time-consuming struggles which pop up in the lab every day. Thus, our products are solely dedicated to help you to concentrate on your scientific tasks and bring your lab to the next level!

If you want to get more details about our scientific work and expertise, in particular for microfocused Brillouin light scattering, have a look at the following publication by our co-founder Dr. Thomas Sebastian et al.:

14.12.2021 New setups in the US

Finally, after many months, we were able to travel to the US again! In the last two weeks, our colleague Dr. Thomas Meyer visited several groups in Illinois, Delaware, and Ohio for a final touch at some new optical scanning microscopy setups for Brillouin light scattering and a training on the alignment of our hardware and on our advanced automation software thaTEC:OS.

Many thanks to our customers for the nice atmosphere, many intersting discussions, and the chance to demonstrate our software to members of other groups and labs!
