Lake Shore — environment by JANIS

With an extensive range of field-proven applications and a worldwide installation base, Lake Shore SuperTran represents the state-of-the-art in continuous flow cryostat design. Using liquid helium (LHe) or liquid nitrogen (LN2), most systems provide fast (15 min or less to 4.2 K with LHe) cooldown, a <2 K to 325 K total operating range, and precise temperature control capability in an economical and easy-to-use package.

Temperature controllerEvery cryostat comes with a Lake Shore temperature controller and calibrated sensor

All systems contain a cold finger, radiation shield, sample holder, lightweight aluminum vacuum shroud (except the ST-400), electrical feedthrough ports, and a high-efficiency flexible 6 ft cryogen transfer line. SuperTran cryostats can be operated in any orientation with only minor variations in efficiencies. Sample temperatures are varied by means of a heater attached to the cold finger. The sample mount and all standard Lake Shore sample holders have provisions for thermometry which, in conjunction with a temperature controller, allow precise control over sample temperature.
