ZoNexus was founded by Dr. Alpesh Khushalchand Shukla. Dr. Shukla's research interests include study of structure and phase transformations in lithium- ion battery materials using electron probe-based materials characterization techniques. In 2019, he started developing electron microscopy tools that address challenges in performing in situ studies on battery materials. The startup company develops tools for transmission electron microscopes (TEM), scanning electron microscopes (SEM), Focused Ion Beam microscopes (FIB) and other microscopy- and spectroscopy-related instruments. ZoNexus' R&D and manufacturing facilities are located in Richmond, California.
