  JEOL is a leading global supplier of electron microscopes, ion beam instruments, mass spectrometers and NMR spectrometers. Commemorating our 65 th anniversary in May, 2014 we have launched a new symbol and a new concept

"Solutions for Innovation"
representing our unique capability in providing complete solutions that contribute to scientific technology worldwide.

Japan Electron Optics Laboratory Co.,Ltd was established in 1949 and started expanding worldwide network.

With overseas branch offices based in more than 30 countries all over the world including America, Europe, Oceania, and Asia, we have established local sales systems and the best possible service systems. In particular, JEOL USA, INC. has built a sales and service network covering wide areas throughout North and South America since it was established in Boston in 1962.

Also in Europe, JEOL Group has established service support systems using local companies, with a large number of units of JEOL Group products delivered to date, since its first overseas delivery to France (in 1956). Local offices in Europe were established earlier, starting with one in France (1964) followed by Britain, the Netherlands, Sweden, Italy, and Germany. Furthermore, carefully worked-out measures are taken in emerging markets including Asian countries, which are continuing to grow.

JEOL Company's Profile Video


is a multi-national company established in 2013 by the merger of the Czech company TESCAN, a leading global supplier of SEMs and focused ion beam workstations, and the French company ORSAY PHYSICS, a world leader in customized Focused Ion Beam and Electron Beam technology.

The TESCAN brand, in the 23 years of its existence, has built a formidable reputation for innovative approaches, the design and manufacture of first-class scanning electron microscopes and customized system solutions for micro- and nanotechnology and related applications.

Strong R&D, continuous participation in leading edge research projects and close cooperation with renowned research institutions around the world, has resulted in great scientific and technical achievements. The LYRA3 - Multi-Functional Analytical FIB Tool for Nanotechnology or FERA3 - the world's first fully integrated Xe plasma source FIB with SEM, are proof of these achievements. Participation in the recently patented Multimodal Holographic Microscope project as well as the recently launched integration of an ultra-high resolution SEM with confocal Raman imaging microscope demonstrate TESCAN's continuous innovation in research strategies.

TESCAN provides unique utilizations of various analytical techniques with the aim of enabling complex in-situ analysis customized to perfectly suit customer needs and requirements. Its product range meets any level of customer requirements in fields such as materials science, industry, nanotechnology, semiconductor applications, biology and life sciences, forensic sciences etc. SEMs installed all over the world are a testament to its first-class quality and proven technology. TESCAN's product range includes thermal emission systems, field emission systems and FIB systems.

Based in Brno - Czech Republic, with a wide international sales and service network, together with continuous development that pushes research and development targets to their physical limits, scientific equipment from TESCAN is the right choice for every researcher.
