Alemnis enables breakthrough academic research in material science by providing leading-edge micro- and nanomechanical property measurement instruments that can be applied in a wide variety of testing environments.

Alemnis products are based on years of experience in the design of scientific instruments and piezoelectric transducers conducted in joint projects between EPFL (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Lausanne) and EMPA (Swiss Federal Laboratories of Material Science and Technology, Thun). A publication by the inventors was awarded the Bunshah Award 2004 of the American Vacuum Society. Alemnis micromechanical testing technology is considered a major milestone in the scientific community.
