Nanoscore GmbH



Thank you for visiting the nanoscore home page. We hope to provide useful information to you as a customer through this portal. It is the intent to give a first glance at the portfolio of products and services. However, this is complex matter. Any web site cannot replace the value of individual consulting, which we as the nanoscore team see as our dedication. Please feel free to contact us any time by e-mail or phone.


Foto_T.Richter_hoch We are happy to welcome Torsten Richter as a new member of the nanoscore team. Torsten Richter holds a diploma in physics and has many years of deep experience in Low Temperature Scanning Probe Microscopy. His first task as a project manager is focussed on the transition of the Joule-Thomson SPM (JT-SPM) from SPECS to UNISOKU. The prime target is the seamless continuation of this successful product – now being in the hands of UNISOKU. In Europe the JT-SPM is exclusively available through nanoscore. The in-depth involvement of Torsten Richter in all aspects of the product affirms our ability to give comprehensive support to JT-SPM customers.

Joule-Thomson SPM
JT-STM_komplett_MG_1397_final_04_225_web Now the renowned Joule-Thomson SPM is available through UNISOKU worldwide and through nanoscore in Europe.
UNISOKU Co. Ltd and SPECS GmbH have entered into a collaboration. As a result the JT STM and the TYTO ™ STM head are transferred to UNISOKU for exclusive manufacture and sales worldwide through the UNISOKU sales network. We at nanoscore are delighted to add these products to the portfolio for our European customers. It greatly fits to the existing UNISOKU products. The USM1300 / 1600 are the leading edge products for ultra-low temperature and extreme magnetic fields – down to 40mK, up to 15Tesla. With the JT STM a product is added to our line which seamlessly fits. It reaches down to below 1K and offers variable temperature capabilities, magnetic field up to 3 Tesla, and high degree of freedom for optical experiments or deposition in situ.

We are looking back to the first year of nanoscore’s exclusive distribution activity for UNISOKU in Europe. The co-operation with UNISOKU Ltd. of Japan, the renowned manufacturer of low temperature SPMs was launched at the beginning of 2014. The Cooperation Announcement has formulated the targets. From day one we were overwhelmed by the positive reaction in the market and by the credit customers giving us right from start.

Now, the first couple of projects under nanoscore’s management have been finalised. The UHV SPM systems have been delivered – and with them the promises we made. In a fruitful collaboration with UNISOKU the installations went smooth – and, most important – were concluded to customers’ full satisfaction.



nanoscore gmbh has been founded by Dr. Thomas Berghaus. The company is located conveniently located close to Frankfurt (Germany). The activities are centred within the scientific market. There are two main areas. The consultancy services address technology and market affairs, project management, and custom engineered solutions. The other area of activities is very much related. nanoscore supports manufacturers of scientific instruments for their market launch in Europe. This may range from consultancy services to active representations. Although being a new foundation the nanoscore team looks backs on more than 30 years of experience of individuals in science, engineering, project management, as well as in market and business affairs. It is nanoscore’s dedication to turn this experience in valuable support to its customers.


The companies name reflects its dedication. “nano” stands for the main target area in the scientific market which is all around nanotechnology. And “nano” is a synonym for precision. Precision is the guiding theme for the nanoscore team providing their service to their customers – and deliver. “score” stands for the commitment on result and yielding a merit. Altogether this depicts the mission of the nanoscore team: Deliver result and value to the customer.
