We are excited to bring the integrated capability of fast-rate, multi-channel measurement to our customers working in quantum technologies and physical sciences at low and ultra-low temperatures, by offering SPECS Nanonis Tramea quantum transport measurement system (QTMS) alongside our world-leading cryogenic research tools, through our partnership with SPECS Surface Nano Analysis GmbH.
The Nanonis Tramea system can be integrated across the entire Oxford Instruments product range, and is compatible with our integrated magnets and patented sample loading pucks. However, we are the only supplier cable of offering a Nanonis Tramea measurement solution at mK temperatures, with dilution refrigerators such as Triton or Io. We also integrate it with products in the 1 K - 300 K temperature range, for example with TeslatronPT or OptistatDry.
The system seamlessly interacts with our MercuryiTC temperature control and MercuryiPS magnet power supply electronics meaning you can control your magnet, cryostat temperature and your experimental routines all in one place. Contact us to discuss what measurement package will suit your application.
The Nanonis Tramea offers:
Powerful, ultrafast measurement solution
A total of 24 inputs and 24 output channels are available which can all be controlled simultaneously by the software. Furthermore, 80 internal signals can be employed for signal generation, detection and feedback – up to 20,000 data points per second!
The Nanonis Tramea uses the fastest 20-bit, 1-ppm DA-converters available on the market. Measurements which took several hours in the past can now be made in minutes without compromising signal quality. Similar performance on multiple outputs would require a rack full of single-channel instruments.
Nanonis Tramea is an advanced measurement solution, which combines the functionality of several different single-purpose instruments into a single, high-performance, compact, fully software-controlled package.
Nanonis Tramea offers functionality of the following dedicated instruments:
- Precision DC sources
- Lock-in amplifiers
- High-resolution data acquisition instruments
- Spectrum analyzers
- Arbitrary waveform generators
- Software measurement suites
Excellent signal performance
All analogue signals are converted immediately into the digital domain where all signal processing is performed. This means no interference with external noise or crosstalk is possible.
Superior and customisable user interface
Modular, flexible software and hardware architecture, with add-on options including a full-featured LabVIEW-based programming interface or scripting module.
Automated signal acquisition and data processing
Handle even the most complex experiments using the modern design and workflow-optimised solutions that deliver a high user efficiency, this is thanks to the state-of-the-art graphical user interface.
Nanonis Tramea Quantum Dot Simulator
The quantum dot simulator lets you explore the complete Nanonis Tramea measurement system as if it were connected to a real quantum dot. Learn the operation of the software without any risk. It simulates a typical single top-gate defined quantum dot, and includes the full feature set of the software. Possible measurements include single gate sweeps, left- vs. right-gate sweeps as well as stability diagrams. Lock-in operation allows differential conductance measurements.

Quantum transport measurement system (QTMS)
Quantum transport measurements are widely used in characterising new materials and devices for emerging quantum technology applications such as quantum information processing (QIP), quantum computing (QC) and quantum sensors. Physicists have long used standard electrical transport measurements such as resistivity, conductance and the Hall effect to gain information on the electronic properties and structure of materials. Now quantum transport measurements such as the quantum Hall effect (QHE) and fractional quantum Hall effect (FQHE) in two-dimensional electron gases (2DEG) and topological insulators – along with a range of other more complex measurements – inform researchers on material properties with quantum mechanical effects.
The ultra low temperatures and high magnetic fields provided by our Triton dilution refrigerator make it a key research tool in revealing the quantum properties of many materials of interest. Our Triton systems already lead the way in experiment-readiness with high-density RF and DC wiring capability, unique sample exchange mechanisms, and unbeatable superconducting magnet integration. SPECS’ Nanonis Tramea QTMS is a natural complementary partner to the Triton, with its fast, multi-channel, multi-functional capability.
Even more applications
Going beyond ultra low temperatures, the Nanonis Tramea is also suitable for fast, sensitive measurements at temperatures between 1 K and 400 K on key new materials and structures such as quantum dots, graphene and other 2D and emerging materials, and can be paired with our other Cryofree tools such as the TeslatronPT B-T measurement platform, or the OptistatDry optical cryostat.
For milliKelvin experiments, Nanonis Tramea can also be integrated with our cryogenic platforms, such as Triton dilution refrigerator and Io compact cooling solution, and has proven ability to significantly increase the speed of measurements (x1000) e.g., for gate controlled quantum dot devices.
