Advance your research with integratable mini-cryostats
Cryo-TEM with liquid helium
GLADIUS is a liquid helium driven sample holder for transmission electron microscopy (TEM) with in-situ capabilities for transport experiments.
Modern metal 3D-printing methodologies enable a novel cryostat design that defines a new standard for efficiency and miniaturized integration.
Starting from room-temperature, sample base temperature is reached within a short time and is stabilized over several hours.
The sample receiver incorporates up to 14 electrical leads to the sample space for in-situ transport experiments. A micro-heater and a Cernox temperature sensor control the local thermal environment.
Depending on experiment, sample receivers can be exchanged by a simple plug and play mechanism. This furthermore allows easier sample access for experimental preparations.
A removable sapphire puck with eight metallic pins enables electrical sample wiring. The sample puck is reproducibly snapped into the receiver.
