Quantum Design International

Since its inception in 1982, Quantum Design International (a privately held corporation) has developed and manufactured automated temperature and magnetic field testing platforms for materials characterization. These systems offer a variety of measurement capabilities and are in widespread use in the fields of physics, chemistry, biotechnology, materials science and nanotechnology.

Building on its expertise in the global marketing and distribution of its own scientific instruments, Quantum Design International (QDI) eventually broadened its scope to distribute quality scientific instruments from other manufacturers through an international network of wholly owned subsidiaries in every major technological center around the world.

With offices in the USA, Japan, China, India, Korea, Taiwan, Singapore and Brazil, as well as thirteen European countries, QDI is strategically located in the world’s key centers for scientific research, providing local marketing, sales and technical support. More information on QDI’s worldwide distribution business may be found at www.QD-International.com.

Quantum Design Inc. (QD) is the manufacturing arm of QDI. Located in San Diego, California, QD is the leading commercial source for automated materials characterization systems incorporating superconducting technology. QD instruments may be found in the world’s leading research institutions, and have become the reference standard for a variety of magnetic and physical property measurements. Quantum Design Inc. instruments are cited in, and provide the data for, more scientific publications than any other instrument in the fields of magnetics and materials characterization. This means that each year, literally hundreds of scientific publications, advancing the science of materials, use data generated from QD instruments.

Recently, Quantum Design Inc. expanded its product line beyond material characterization, to include instruments such as: a compact IR Crystal Furnace for the creation of new material; a Superconducting High-Gradient Magnetic Separator (SHGMS) for the processing and improvement of Kaolin clay; and a full line of Advanced Technology Liquefiers (ATL) and Helium Recovery Systems for the conservation and recycling of helium (a vital and increasingly scarce resource essential for cryogenic research and instrumentation).

In diverse areas such as materials characterization, high-sensitivity electrical measurements, and in-lab helium conservation, Quantum Design’s team of scientists and engineers provides a full spectrum of service and application support for customers both domestically and internationally.



Quantum Design Singapore

In 2017, to better support our customers in Southeast Asia, Quantum Design Singapore was founded. Sales, service and applications support are provided by this office for QD’s Southeast Asia customers. The long term goal of QD Singapore is to introduce new technologies and leading instruments into the Asian market by partnering up with leading manufacturers who wish to penetrate this market and also with researchers who have great ideas and would like to commercialize their prototypes. Once a partnership is established, we work quickly to build market awareness by establishing technical capability combined with innovative marketing activities. In this way, we are able to quickly respond to the user's technical needs and provide an effective link between the manufacturer and Asian customers. Quantum Design Singapore has been very successful in bringing leading edge instruments from our partners into the Asian market in the areas of materials characterization, physics, nanotechnology and Bio science.
