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!

Having 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.:

30.03.2020 New online device library

During these days, many labs are locked down due to COVID-19. Lucky you if you have a flexible and universal automation software taking care of all your measurements like our automation framework thaTEC:OS!
Check out our new online device library with all currently supported devices and functions by thaTEC:OS which is now available in the support section.

Your device is missing? No problem, send us a request!

26.03.2020 We are supporting #teilenfuersheilen

The initiative #teilenfuersheilen was started by the German food start-up Gipfelpuls.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many trade-fairs were canceled and - as it is the case for many other food start-ups - orders went down. Thus, Gipfelpuls decided to use their stocked products in the best way and to freely provide them to our doctors and nurses in the hospitals who are working hard these days to fight Corona.
With this initiative, you can support Gipfelpuls and other joining food start-ups to cover their costs for the free deliveries and survive these tough times!
=> Start supporting and check out www.teilenfuersheilen.de for more information.

03.02.2020 The next generation of our optical scanning microscropes is about to be preassembled and shipped!

Today, all CNC milled parts for the next setups arrived. The new setups will be a Brillouin microscope, a combined Brillouin and ODMR setup and a Raman microscope. We are already excited - let the assembly begin!

16.01.2020: New application note out: Injection locking in spin-Hall nano-oscillators investigated by Brillouin light scattering microscopy

Learn how to use our optical scanning microscope in combination with our software platform thaTEC:OS for complex measurements. The application note is based on measurements performed by Toni Hache from the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf. Thank you for sharing!

Check out the new application here.

14.01.2020 Congratulations to Wei Zhang from the Oakland University in Rochester, Michigan!

A few days ago, Wei Zhang received the 2020 NSF CAREER Award for his research on quantum spintronics. We are proud to be a part of his project which aims for the development of an educational Quantum Physics Lab Module with in-house developed hardware and software on top of a highly interactive laboratory learning platform based on our software platform thaTEC:OS.

20.12.2019: Merry christmas!

While the holiday season is approaching, our two Thomas talk about the past year and also upcoming projects in the next year over a cup of traditional hot wine.

We all wish you and your families and friends a relaxing christmas time and a good start into the next year!
