Our helium cryostat 4 K sample in vacuum cryostat, with the lowest helium consumption on the market, is well suited for experiments requiring a large sample space and minimum number of windows in the optical beam path (reducing reflective losses).


It is also a very versatile instrument as its tail is interchangeable between MicrostatHe and MicrostatHe Rectangular tail, ideal for microscopy and Magneto-optical Kerr effect experiments.

  • Wide temperature range: from 3.2 K to 500 K
  • Large sample space enabling studies of sample with a wide range of size and geometry
  • Superb optical access (f/0.9) for measurements requiring light collection
  • Optimised clear beam throughput (23 mm diameter aperture) allows a large illumination area for measurements involving the detection of low intensity light
  • The most economical use of cryogens on the market: less than 0.45 L/h at 4.2 K using a Low Loss Transfer tube
  • No cold windows enabling the use of any window material above 300 K
  • Demountable radiation shield windows to maximise transmission intensity
  • Compact size allowing easy integration into commercial spectrometers
  • Electrical measurements via 10-pin electrical feed wire to heat exchanger
  • Can be operated in pull mode (using a gas flow pump to pull the helium from a storage dewar to the sample space) or push mode (by pressurising the storage dewar)
