Subject Matter Experts

From our core business of providing scientific solutions to our clients, we have developed innovative products. Some are produced internally, and some have arisen from partnerships with other research organizations. 

For example, we build lab software solutions to help manage and streamline your labs data, and environmental testing products for a variety of applications. 

  • IntelliSEM is a powerful automated particle analysis system.
  • ParticleID is  a customizable cloud hosted web application used to identify foreign particulate matter and  assist with root cause investigations. 

Other products we create count particles and help keep the air and environment safe.

RJ Lee Group is a materials analysis laboratory and consulting company which serves many different industries. We offer scientific solutions such as industrial forensics services, laboratory and testing services, litigation support, and laboratory software to many industries:

Failure Analysis
RJ Lee Group’s experts apply our unique industrial forensics approach to your project, assuring that each step of the process is being investigated from material selection to the final product. Once we discover the root cause of product failure, we relay the results so that you thoroughly understand how and why your component or product failed. Our scientists will also recommend both corrective and preventive actions to reduce future risk of failure and optimize performance.

RJ Lee Group’s experts undertake industrial forensic inquiry into failed components, products, or systems. Our failure analysis specialties include metallurgical, electronic device, concrete, and specialty chemicals and coatings.

Lab-Supported Failure Analysis Investigations

RJLG experts begin by closely inspecting the product, then interview the client to understand the circumstances of failure, the operating conditions, and the maintenance provided. Our experts reconstruct the mode of failure and identify materials characteristics that may have contributed to failure. Armed with these results, we assist our client in minimizing or eliminating their effects. Our experts provide expert analytical support from the micro-level of a failed semiconductor to identifying flaws in hot worked mill rolls 10 feet in diameter.

The failure analysis lab includes a suite of electron microscopy and spectroscopy methods that are critical in failure investigations.
