ORTEC is one of the leading nuclear instrumentation companies in the field of scientific research. Over the years we have developed a large range of products which are used in scientific laboratories around the world.
Since its inception in 1960, ORTEC has consistently supported a full line of NIM (Nuclear Instrument Module) instrumentation for nuclear physics, material science, biochemistry, optics, and chemistry. Experiments that involve simple counting of events or timing systems using various detector signals can be assembled with ORTEC electronics. Systems that measure specifically timed energy spectra or time of flight for various particles can be provided.
In contrast to other suppliers, ORTEC is increasing its NIM and modular electronics offerings. Besides the great opportunities found in integrated digital spectrometer systems, we still see many good reasons why a NIM based system is the top choice for many applications. The modularity gives the opportunity to adjust the system to the experimental needs.
A NIM based experimental set-up is also the best choice for educational purposes. The non "black-box" approach will give students the chance to follow the signal path and to understand the experiment in great detail.
For your convenience, ORTEC offers a helpful application overview. In each section, basic principles are explained and application examples are given with links to the relevant products.
