ST-100 Optical Cryostat
Optical continuous flow cryostat suitable for a wide range of applications: the window material and geometry can be specified to allow spectroscopy with excitation energies from gamma rays through to the far infrared.
Designed for experiments requiring optical access to the sample, the Janis Research ST-100 includes the following components:

Special ST-100 SuperTran with Rotatable Vacuum Shroud for Matrix Isolation
This special ST-100 has two semi-rigid cables installed from the top flange to the sample area. It has a compact window block with (2) Polyethylene windows and (2) fused quartz windows.
Conflat flange to Ladish flange adaptor
The image shows a conflat flange/ladish flange adaptor that allows an ST-100 to be installed on a UHV chamber with a 2.75" conflat flange. Please note that while this is the easiest way to put an ST-100 onto a UHV chamber, the ST-100 will not be UHV compatible.
Standard Window Block with Countersunk Screw Holes Option
Janis Research usually uses pan-head screws on the retainers of window blocks, which add about 0.125” to each side of the window block. In cases were space is an issue, talk to your sales engineer about countersunk screw holes in the retainers so that flathead screws can be used, as shown in this photo. This option can be offered on most window blocks with o-ring sealed windows. The window block shown can be used on our model VPF-100, VPF-800, ST-100, CCS-150, CCS-100/202, CCS-100/204 and SHI-4-2.
