BOZEMAN, Mont., March 2, 2015 — The updated Cryostation C2 from Montana Instruments Corp. is an optical measurement platform that operates at 3.2 to 350 K. A redesigned sample-support structure improves stiffness for better positional stability and increased thermal performance. The system has evolved to ensure low vibration (<5 nm) across various experimental setups and in demanding applications. Other design improvements reduce energy transfer to the table. The new shape improves access to the experiment from all directions, and an integrated light makes it easier to setup the experiment and work with the sample. New updates in the firmware and electronics result in more intuitive temperature control, optimized wide-range temperature stability of ±5 mK and quicker speeds to set-point.
