No matter our size, we think big and act big so we set four standards by which we conduct business and guide our everyday actions.


These are our top four corporate values.

  1. Excellence in Everything We Do – We know leadership is hard won and should never be taken for granted. Likewise, we know that execution and measured performance ensure our long-term success. We are committed to delivering products and services that are relevant, of the highest quality and with utmost professional execution. Continuous improvement and learning from our mistakes is a priority and the foundation we build upon.
  1. Great People with Great Values – Great results are achieved through great people. Therefore, we seek to attract people with diverse talents and perspectives who are bright, creative, and energetic and who share the following values:
    • Integrity and honesty rigorously upheld at all times.
    • Passion for nanoscience.
    • Open and respectful with others.
    • Willingness to take on big challenges and see them through.
    • Self-critical, questioning, and committed to personal excellence and self-improvement.
    • Agile and flexible–embracing change and seizing new opportunities
    • Most importantly, accountable for commitments, results, and quality to customers, partners, teammates and members of the community at large.
  1. Community – We have an innate sense of responsibility for making a positive impact on society and empowering students, scientists, professionals and the general public through our education and outreach programs.
  1. Fun – We believe it is critically important to celebrate achievement, applaud irreverence and maintain humor so that we stay creative and don’t take ourselves too seriously.
