Microscopy magnet system

Designed to operate with the Lake Shore model ST-500 high stability microscopy cryostat, this system allows microscopy measurements to be performed in fields of 7 T. (Contact us if you require a system with higher fields.) The system comes with X-Y-Z translation stages for sample scanning and focusing, and is designed for magneto-optical imaging at helium temperatures.

Standard configuration

This system combines the Lake Shore ST-500 high spatial stability microscopy cryostat with a 7 T superconducting magnet. The magnet cryostat offers a 42 mm clear vertical bore providing easy movement of a 29 mm OD microscopy cryostat extension within the bore of the magnet. This allows the user to scan a 13 mm diameter region of the sample placed at the magnet centerline, located approximately 89 mm under the top flange of the magnet cryostat.

System features:

  • 7 T vertical bore superconducting magnet
  • 15 to 24 h cryogen hold time
  • 42 mm ID room temperature bore
  • Ultra-low drift ST-500 microscopy cryostat
  • Temperature range from 3.5 to 325 K (420 K optional)
  • Precision XYZ translation stages
  • Full viewing of 16 mm diameter sample
