SVT-400 high-efficiency cryostat
Designed for maximum efficiency at any temperature range, the SVT-400 will hold liquid helium for more than 40 h during sample zone use (or more than 100 h if the sample zone is static). The sample tube is surrounded by a nitrogen-temperature radiation shield; therefore operation at elevated temperatures does not place any additional heat load on the helium reservoir.
The Lake Shore SVT-400 variable temperature cryostat is designed to run efficiently with either liquid helium or liquid nitrogen. The system's ultra-low cryogen consumption, remarkable temperature homogeneity, and stability make it ideal for long or short-term experiments. The top-loading sample positioner features quick sample exchange and is offered with a variety of sample holders.
The standard cryostat is supplied with strain-relief mounted, replaceable quartz windows. Various choices of window materials are available to cover most regions of the electromagnetic spectrum, including gamma rays, UV, visible, and IR radiation. Typical applications include transmission, reflection, Raman spectroscopy, neutron diffraction, Mössbauer spectroscopy, and other magneto-optical and electro-optical experiments.
Tubular tailed systems are offered for electrical and magnetic measurements, compact VSM, Hall effect, and NMR experiments. Both high-temperature and low-temperature experiments are economically performed using the most desirable cryogen.
Complete turnkey systems are supplied with various choices of thermometry, for use both in and out of magnetic fields and at high-temperature ranges.

Model SVT-400 with Sample in Vacuum
The Model SVT-400 with sample in vacuum replaces the Model VT-100 cryostat. Instead of having a sample positioner with a sample holder cooled by flowing vapor, as the standard Model SVT-400 cryostat does, this special Model SVT-400 cryostat has an optical sample holder mounted to the bottom of the sample tube. This allows the gas in the sample tube to cool the sample holder while the sample is held in a vacuum.
