The Company R_und_K Home

Riegler & Kirstein is a company devoted to the design of Langmuir troughs and layer-by-layer deposition (self-assembly) devices for use in the scientific field of monolayers and Langmuir-Blodgett research. It is run by Dr. Hans Riegler and Dr. Stefan Kirstein. It was founded in 1993 as a spin-off from the experienced work of both of them in the group of Prof. H. Moehwald.

The design of our instruments is the result of many years of extensive lab-experience in the field of monolayers, LB-research, and polyelectrolyte layer-by-layer deposition ('self-assembly'). In fact, we do use our own systems in our daily research work. Accordingly, our instruments offer all the technical features necessary for optimum and most efficient laboratory use and handling.

Our instrument design is based on the following principles:

  1. Simple and self-explaining instrument operation.
  2. Mechanical and electronic modularity, open architecture.
  3. State-of-the-art mechanics and electronics.
  4. Customer-specific equipment design.
  5. Low prices.
