Cryostats for Low Temperature System for Attomic Force Microscopy (AFM)/Scanning Tunneling Microscopy (STM)
Shown to the right is a special helium dewar supplied to Seoul National University in South Korea. This unit was to be integrated into a UHV surface analysis system which includes instruments such as an AFM/STM probe. Featuring a modular design, this cryostat required the full complement of Janis' design and manufacturing capabilities—all at a cost far below our competitors.
Scanning Tunneling Microscopy (STM) Superconducting Magnet System with Optical Access
An 8 T split superconducting magnet system has been designed and built for a Scanning Tunneling Microscope with optical access to the microscope cooling stage. The microscope is top loaded into a UHV space that can be baked out to a temperature of 150 degrees Celsius without affecting the superconducting magnet or the rest of the cryostat. The system offers variable temperatures from below superfluid helium temperatures up to room temperature. Several variations are available on this basic design, enclosing bottom optical access, cryostats for Scanning Near Field Optical Microscopes, Atomic Force Microscopes, etc. Please visit our UHV Compatible Superconducting Magnets web page.
