AMO’s phylosophy is to spin off technologies that have reached market maturity and that allow the commercialization of a finished product. AMOtronics and Protemics are the first two companies emerged from AMO.


In 2010, AMO founded AMOtronics – its first spin-off in the field of measurement instrumentation.  AMOtronics develops high-end measurement technology and control systems. Its test and analysis solutions are used worldwide in a wide range of research and industrial projects, in the energy sector, aerospace, as well as automotive industry and defense.



Founded in 2014, Protemics is a spin-off of AMO and of the RWTH Aachen University. Protemics  develops ultra-fast photoconductive Terahertz microprobe devices for non-destructive testing applications. Protemics stands for innovative, custom-oriented products and services beyond the limits of conventional THz imaging tools.
