Understanding how much and when a sample will drift at cryogenic temperatures is important for researchers. This article explains how the Montana Instrument's Cryostation has developed a way to minimize drift while at a steady temperature, and while transitioning over large temperature ranges.
Learn how the team managed to balance 12 axis of motion, 8 high frequency coax connections, fiber optic feedthroughs, low working distance, and a custom sample mount with a low temperature, low vibration, highly stable system.
Helium has become difficult to source. This article explains the history of sourcing helium and why it is currently expensive to procure. The Cryostation is a closed cycle cryostat that eliminates the need for cryogenic researchers to find helium.
