Cryostats for microscopy applications

Low temperature microscopy applications require compact cryostats with short working distances enabling the sample to be close to the microscope objective lens and excellent optical access. Also cryostats have to be stable to enable experiments over long period of time. Our Microstat range of products fillls all these requirements and is suitable for applications such as microphotoluminescence, micro-raman, quantum dot characterisation. All cryostats can also be fitted with electrical connections for electrical measurements. The Microstat range is outlined below:
 

  MicrostatN2 MicrostatHe2 MicrostatHires2 MicrostatMO2
Cooling medium Liquid nitrogen Liquid helium or liquid nitrogen Liquid helium or liquid nitrogen Liquid helium
Temperature range 77 - 500 K 2.2 - 500 K 2.7 - 500 K 6 - 300 K
Magnetic field NA NA1 NA1 5 T
Working distance2 (mm) 2 4.5 to 5.5
8 for rectangular tail
2.2 to 5.7 8.5
Vibration (vertical)3 < 0.1 µm <0.1 µm < 20 nm < 20 nm
Lateral sample holder drift at constant temperature3 < 1 µm /  hour < 1 µm /  hour 150 nm / hour < 4 nm / min

Note 1: Rectangular tail MicrostatHe2 and MicrostatHires2 pillared version are suitable for use with an electromagnet
Note 2: Working distance defined as the distance from the sample holder to the window top surface
Note 3: The stability will be dependent upon the final system's configuration and the environment that the equipment is used in
