Montana Instruments Cryostation Optical Cryostat

Closed Cycle Optical Cryostats 

Montana Instruments are on a mission – to make cold science simple. Their philosophy is centred on three main principles: 

1) Ease of use
2) Ease of access
3) Turn-key operation

All their optical cryostats are cryogen-free and combine low vibration, high temperature stability, low sample drift and superb optical access – making them suited for the most demanding cryogenic experiments.

A full library of documentation can be found via the Montana Instruments Documentation Area

As the sample space is modular, the user has many options regarding configuration of their experimental setup. Take a look at the image gallery to find out just what is possible.  View the Montana Instruments image gallery

OPTIONS

The Cryostation s50 Vertical Cryo-Optic Microscope integrates a high performance, colour corrected, vented objective into the sample space of the Cryostation s50 system for high NA imaging at low temperatures.  The vertical mounting scheme was primarily designed for confocal microscopy, with side optical access available to allow users to see the sample and approximate focus distance. The objective is temperature stabilised near room temperature and is supported via a dedicated UPS unit. The system includes XYZ low temperature nanopositioners for sample movement and focus adjustment. Additionally, if rapid change of the sample temperature is desired, the Agile Temperature Sample Mount is recommended

Alternatively, it is possible to adapt the Cryo-Optic for use in the Nanoscale Workstation NW2 system – the difference being that the objective is orientated in the horizontal direction.

FEATURES:

  • 3.7-350 K temperature range
  • < 10 mK temperature stability (pk-pk)
  • Vertical (axial) objective
  • Integrated XYZ low-temperature nanopositioners
  • ~ 6 hour cool-down time (to 4.2 K)
  • Choice of either 0.9, 0.85 or 0.75 NA objective
  • x2 interface side panels

APPLICATIONS:

  • Confocal microscopy
  • Diamond NV centres
  • Photoluminescence
  • Low temperature Raman spectroscopy

A Magneto-Optic add-on module for the Cryostation s50 integrates a bipolar magnet directly into the sample chamber with fields up to 0.7 Tesla. For higher magnetic fields, external magnets can be seamlessly integrated through the use of round and rectangular castles.

FEATURES:

  • 3.7-350 K temperature range
  • < 10 mK temperature stability (pk-pk)
  • Vertical (axial) objective
  • Integrated XYZ low-temperature nanopositioners
  • ~ 6 hour cool-down time (to 4.2 K)
  • Choice of either 0.9, 0.85 or 0.75 NA objective
  • x2 interface side panels

The Cryostation s100 Horizontal Cryo-Optic is the latest model in the Cryo-Optic product line. This system integrates a high performance, colour corrected, vented objective into the sample space of the Cryostation s100 system for high NA imaging at low temperatures.  The horizontal mounting scheme provides seamless integration with other optical components – as well as particularly lending itself towards high NA transmission setups. As with the Cryostation s50 Vertical Cryo-Optic microscope, the objective is temperature stabilised near room temperature and is supported via a dedicated UPS unit.

The system includes XYZ low temperature nanopositioners for sample movement and focus adjustment. Additionally, if rapid change of the sample temperature is required, the Agile Temperature Sample Mount is recommended

FEATURES:

  • 3.8-350 K temperature range
  • < 10 mK temperature stability (pk-pk)
  • Horizontal (radial) objective
  • Integrated XYZ low-temperature nanopositioners
  • 100 mm beam height
  • ~ 4.5 hour cool-down time (to 4.2 K)
  • Choice of either 0.85 or 0.75 NA objective

APPLICATIONS:

  • Transmission microscopy
  • Scanning confocal microscopy
  • Exciton-polariton condensates
