STOE & Cie GmbH

As the world’s premier X-ray diffraction (XRD) company, STOE develops, manufactures and sells scientific instruments for the non-destructive analysis of substances. Based on the X-ray diffraction (XRD) method, these systems characterize single crystals and powder samples and give answers to which substances a particular powder or crystal contains or at which positions atoms in solid bodies are exactly located.
STOE, originally founded in 1887, to manufacture equipment for the optical analysis of crystals, has been a pioneer in powder and single crystal X-ray diffraction since the 1960’s.
STOE invented and patented the transmission geometry technique for Powder XRD as well as, for single crystals, produced the first pixel detector XRD system with an open Eulerian crad
German engineering has a well-earned reputation as some of the best in the world. The craftsmanship and the quality of the engineering by STOE combine to achieve unparalleled precision and product performance.
STOE keeps the R&D, software programming, electrical and mechanical engineering and production all in house. This ensures that every system that is built achieves the best in product quality and precision – 100% quality control. This high-level of detail is one of the many things that sets STOE apart.
