Nion Company was established in 1997 by Ondrej Krivanek and Niklas Dellby in the state of Washington, USA, with the goal of researching, designing, and manufacturing high-end electron-optical instruments and similar products.
Ondrej is a co-founder of Nion. Ondrej has worked as the director of Research at Gatan Inc., as professor at Arizona State University and as researcher at the Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory. He has been developing electron-optical instruments since his post-doctorate: serial-detection EELS in the early 1980's, parallel-detection EELS in the mid-1980's, CCD cameras and image analysis software for electron microscopy in the late 1980's, and imaging filters in the early 1990's. Since 1995, he has focused on aberration correction, whole microscope design and managing Nion. He has a Ph.D. in Physics from Cambridge University in the UK.

Ondrej Ladislav Krivánek (born in Prague in 1950) received his primary and secondary education in Prague, and had a volunteer job as a tourist guide at the Prague Castle when 15. In 1968, the year of the "Prague Spring", he was accepted into Prague's Charles University to study physics, but he changed his plans when he saw images of Russian tanks rolling through the streets of Prague in the newspapers while visiting London that summer. He decided to stay in England, and he graduated with a B.Sc. from Leeds University and a Ph.D. in Physics from Cambridge University.
Ondrej was a postdoctoral fellow at Kyoto University, Bell Labs and the University of California at Berkeley, assistant professor of Physics at Arizona State University, director of research at Gatan, visiting professor at Tokyo Institute of Technology, CNRS Orsay and at Cambridge University, and research professor at University of Washington. In 1997, he co-founded Nion Company near Seattle in Washington State. He has since been Nion's president and more recently also adjunct professor of physics at Arizona State University.
During his post-doc at Berkeley, he found that he liked thinking up, designing, making and then using pioneering new instruments more than working with existing ones, and later on that instrument development can often be done more freely and effectively in a small company setting than in academia. Instruments whose design he originated, such as Gatan's electron energy loss spectrometers and imaging filters, CCD cameras and DigitalMicrograph software, and more recently electron-optical aberration correctors and Nion's whole electron microscopes and monochromators, can be found in many laboratories around the world, and they have helped to produce many scientific advances. The Nion microscopes in particular have been able to explore matter in unprecedented detail, launching a new spring in electron microscopy.
Ondrej has published over 240 papers and book chapters, with over 6000 citations. His work has been honored by an R&D 100 award (1993), the Seto Prize of the Japanese Electron Microcopy Society (1999), the Duddell Prize of the Institute of Physics (2000), the Distinguished Scientist Award of the Microscopy Society of America (2008), and an election to the British Royal Society (2010).
