FEI company, a high-resolution imaging and analysis systems producer, published that King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST), in Saudi Arabia, has ordered numerous of the company’s systems as part of KAUST’s plan to build a world-class, international, graduate-level research university which will focus on stimulating advancements in scientific achievement. The order from the University includes Titan and Titan Krios transmission electron microscopes (TEMs), a Helios DualBeam, various mid-range products, and a complete support package to ensure the University’s success in its endeavor.

“We are honored to be chosen by KAUST to support its impressive program to develop a leading research university,” said Don Kania, President and CEO of FEI Company. “Given the very high standards the KAUST has set for all of its activities, we view our selection as confirmation of our technology leadership position and unique capability to support world-class nanoscale research. This is an important order in FEI’s history, and it illustrates the significant investments that forward-looking countries and institutions around the world are making in nanotechnology.”

The systems are planned to be used in material science and life science research and teaching applications with shipments lined up to begin in the first part of 2009 and spread over many quarters.
