Cryostats and sample holders for fixed position probe measurements

DLTS sample holder VPFLake Shore offers sample holders with up to four fixed-position tungsten probes installed for the electrical measurement of samples without the need for permanent contacts. This design is suitable for measurements in temperatures as high as 800 K, and may be ordered wired to the feedthrough type of your choice, including multi-pin, BNC, or SMA. Originally designed for DLTS applications, the sample holder is suitable for any kind of measurement where permanent electrical contacts are undesirable.

This photograph shows a sample holder set up for four-point measurements. A non-electrically conductive mounting surface is provided and the probes have a limited range of movement for fine-scale positioning when the sample is warm.

This sample holder may be used with any of our standard laboratory cryogenics products, in particular the VPF-800 (liquid nitrogen cooled pourfill cryostat with sample in vacuum), ST-100 (liquid helium-cooled continuous flow cryostat with sample in vacuum), and CCS-450 (10 K closed-cycle refrigerator with sample in vacuum).
