Centre Suisse d'Électronique et Microtechnique
The Centre Suisse d'Électronique et Microtechnique (CSEM), a private non-profit Swiss research and technology organization, is committed to both applied and industry-commissioned R&D. A bridge and catalyst for the transfer of technology and know-how between science and the economy, we continually adapt our research focus to meet industry’s needs. Today, we supply a broad range of markets—including automotive, medical, machine tools, and space exploration—with an even broader range of technological solutions.

Under contract with the Swiss Confederation, we develop and maintain technology platforms, we integrate and combine technologies into workable systems, we mature those technologies until using them will add value to our industrial clients, then we support the process of transferring those technologies to industry.
Since its foundation in 1984, CSEM has built close and productive relationships with EC-funded bodies, and with academic institutions, other research and technology organizations, and industry partners across the continent.

CSEM’s activities in SUPERTWIN are led by the Time & Frequency group which is part of the CSEM's Scientific Instrumentation activity. This group based in Neuchâtel has an extended expertise in the design and development of sophisticated optical and electro-optical systems for industrial and space applications, such as miniature atomic clocks, lidars, ultrafast or tunable solid-state and semiconductor lasers. Time & Frequency physicists are used to work at system level with industrial constrains and in close collaboration with electrical and mechanical engineers. This system approach is of upmost importance for a technically sound and successful development.

CSEM is leading the technical coordination of the SUPERTWIN project and is in charge of designing, assembling, and testing the super-twinning microscope functional prototype.
