Created in June 1985 by a teacher from Claude Bernard University, a teacher and an engineer from Ecole Centrale de Lyon, Science et Surface knew how to understand industrial demands and has successfully become a benchmark in physical and chemical analyses of surface and interfaces of materials.

On the occasion of the retirement of its director, it joined SERMA group in July 2018 as a subsidiary of SERMA Technologies and completes the group’s expertise panel.

In 2021, Science et Surface and SERMA Technologies merge. Science et Surface becomes the surface and materials analysis laboratory of SERMA Technologies.
