Welcome at THATec Innovation!

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

Having worked and graduated in basic research, we know the small and time-consuming struggles which pop up in the lab every day. To help you to concentrate on your scientific tasks, THATec Innovation offers software and hardware solutions to move your lab to the next level.

19.09.2019: 3D printed cable holder on Thingiverse!

3D printing is not only perfect for prototyping like we use it for the delopment of our microscope hardware, but 3D printed tools, sample holders, stands, etc. became quite common in many experimental physics labs around the world.

Being experimental physicists ourselves, we are always looking for simple solutions to help scientists with their daily work. Besides our powerful automation software for lab equipment, we also try to solve the well-known small issues in your labwork which can be quite annoying. One well-known issue in any optical setup is cable routing and fixing cables to the optical table.

Thus, we created a simple 3D printed cable holder for optical tables which we are already using in every lab we have set up in the last months. Providing a through hole for M6 screws, the holder can be fixed to the table and by feeding zip-ties through the holes in the holder, cable routing is no longer an issue!

Happy printing!

06.09.2019: Talk at the industrial perspectives session at the ESM in Brno

Today, our CEO Dr. Thomas Sebastian gave a talk about our startup company in the industrial perspectives session at The European School on Magnetism in Brno.

Showing the history and evolution of our startup since the foundation 3 years ago, the students got a valuable insight into the daily life, the pros and cons of founding your own company.

04.09.2019: First practical on Brillouin light scattering microscopy at the ESM in Brno

Today, it was time for the first practical on Brillouin light scattering microscopy at the European School on Magnetism.

Using our setup we instlled last year at the Ceitec institute, we could introduce the basics on Brillouin light scattering and allow all participants to get a hands-on experience.

During the practical, we measured thermally excited spin-waves in Permalloy thin films of different thickness and then changed to microstructured samples which allow for the external excitation of magnons. The combination of thaTEC:OS and our microscopy software, the participants could perform an automated 2D mapping of the spin-wave intensity in the microstructures which gave a good insight into the physics of spin-waves.
We thank all participants for their interest and enthusiasm during the practical and we are looking forward for the next practical on Brillouin light scattering microscopy on Sunday!

03.09.2019: First lab automation practical at the ESM in Brno

Today, we gave the first practical on lab automation using LabView at the European School on Magnetism.

After an introduction, all 14 participants were given different devices to control them using LabView and our programming template which allows an easy integration into thaTEC:OS to perform automated measurements.

We thank all participants for their interest and enthusiasm during the practical and we are looking forward for the next practical on Thursday!

The abstracts for the practicals which we will offer at the 2019 European School on Magnetism in Brno, Czech Republic are now available!
We will offer two different practicals:

See you next week in Brno!

08.08.2019: We are a sponsor of the 3rd BioBrillouin meeting!

After the amazing BioBrillouin meetings in Perugia and Lyon, we are very happy to announce that we will also be a sponsor of the 3rd BioBrillouin meeting in Porto next month!

The application of Brillouin light scattering microscopy for biological and biomedical research is absolutely exciting and we are pleased to be a part of it and to help people saving lots of time due to our measurement automation software!

There is still more than one week time until the early registration deadline!
