Low Temperature Platform Solutions

Background

Cryogenic detectors are being used in an increasing range of applications, due to their tremendous sensitivity in both the physical and life sciences and ranging from astronomy to security applications. There is currently particular interest in applications in the TeraHertz radiation detection. To achieve ultimate sensitivity the detection devices need to be cooled to low temperatures.

Low Temperature Platform Solutions

Oxford Instruments NanoScience can offer a wide range of low temperature platform solutions depending on the operating temperature of the cryogenic detector, the configuration of coupling to the radiation source and whether you require a Cryofree product or a system requiring liquid cryogen cooling.

Table 1 will help you select the appropriate product.
