Low Temperature (4K) Scanning-Tunneling Microscope with Q+ AFM
Omicron STM with AFM – Provides high resolution atomic images of conductive, semi-conductive, and insulator samples in high-vacuum atmospheres using STM and AFM techniques. Capable of holding Helium temperatures for 50+ hours, and Nitrogen temperatures for up to a week.
Our Omicron STM with AFM performs topography measurements of samples in a high vacuum, cryogenic temperature system. These cryogenic temperatures are achieved using helium and nitrogen bath techniques. Helium bath cryogenics achieve temperatures of 4.7 K, and can be kept at temperature for 50+ hours.
Nitrogen bath Cryogenics achieve temperatures of 77K and can be kept at temperature of up to a week.
Our STM with AFM system is magnetic field capable. Using this field, we are able to perform measurement experiments on polarized spins. Our STM with AFM can image single atoms (as opposed to NMR which is only able to image thousands at once).
