The PS-100 benchtop cryogenic probe offers versatile cryogenic testing in a fully specified standard system rendering the probe station ideal for labs with limited funding or who are just beginning with materials testing.
The PS-100 is preconfigured for sensitive, high-impedance DC measurements, enabling it to be used in a wide range of applications. It features a four-arm triaxial TTPX configuration for four-point probing and offers high-stability operation over a temperature range of 4.2K to 475K. Micro-manipulated, high-precision stages ensure accurate probe tip placement, and the PS-100 accommodates samples up to 32mm (1.25-in) in diameter.
The compact table-top design is ideal for laboratory and academic research settings. It offers efficient cryogenic temperature operation with a continuous refrigeration system using either liquid helium or liquid nitrogen. With the included Lake Shore Model 336 temperature controller, it is possible to regulate sample stage and radiation shield temperatures independently while monitoring probe arm temperature. The model PS-100 features complete thermal anchoring and radiation shielding that keeps heat from reaching the sample. Probes are cooled to the sample stage temperature to reduce heat load to the device under test. The Model PS-100 Tabletop Cryogenic Probe Station is also field-upgradable.
The key features of the Model PS- 100 are:
- Fully specified, preconfigured entry-level system
- Compact table-top design with four-arm triaxial configuration
- Affordable, simple to order, rapidly shipped
- Just add cryogen and vacuum pump
- Can be field upgraded for other TTPX capabilities
