ST-100 Series cryostats

Lake Shore SuperTran ST-100 Series cryostats are continuous-flow cryostats with the sample located in vacuum. They operate with either liquid helium for operation to 2 K or liquid nitrogen for operation to 77 K and withstand high temperatures with options up to 800 K. A high-efficiency transfer line delivers liquid cryogen to the cold finger for cooling, and temperatures below 4.2 K can be achieved with a vacuum pump. By utilizing the built-in heater and 335 temperature controller, these cryostats offer precise variable temperature control within 50 mK.

ST-100 Series cryostats can be combined with the RGC recirculating gas cooler for fully cryogen-free operation throughout the entire temperature range. This enables unattended cryostat operation, making it perfect for extended-duration measurements.

Custom configurations are also available to fit restricted spaces, such as magnet systems or spectrometers, or to accommodate large samples, including semiconductor wafers and “cold plates” that cool multiple samples at once.
