Harrick Plasma, formerly known as Harrick Scientific, has historically specialized in the design and manufacture of instruments for optical spectroscopy. Since its beginnings in 1969, Harrick Scientific has enjoyed a long reputation of advancing the frontiers of optical spectroscopy through its innovations to transmission, internal reflection, external reflection, diffuse reflection, and emission spectroscopy. The president and founder of the corporation, Dr. N. J. Harrick, pioneered internal reflection spectroscopy and became the principal developer of this technique.
Harrick Scientific was one of the first companies to pioneer the manufacture of benchtop research plasma devices more than thirty years ago. Although originally conceived for surface cleaning in optical spectroscopy and general optics, Harrick Scientific's plasma devices have found service in a wide variety of applications and in numerous technical fields. Our plasma devices are common in many research labs, and have been referenced in over 300 peer-reviewed papers and in more than 60 patents.
Harrick Plasma is located in Ithaca, New York. In our renewed focus, we look forward to continuing in our innovation of the use of plasma technology to meet the diverse surface treatment needs of the research community.
