Lake Shore Cryotronics Inc. has released a low-vibration cryogen-free micromanipulated probe station that provides efficient temperature operation and control with a 4-K closed-cycle refrigerator. Operating temperature range is from 4.5 to 350 K, with stability of 10 mK. An optional interchangeable sample holder extends the range to 475 K. Control heaters on the sample stage, on the second-stage cold head, on the first-stage riser and on the radiation shield produce fast thermal response and rapid warm-up for sample exchange. Sample exchange cycle time is <3.5 h, and sample stage vibration is <1 μm. The user-configurable station has up to six micromanipulated probe arms, each providing precise three-axis control of the probe position.
