Opening the Door for a New Direction in Dilution Refrigerator Development

Unlock new applications, maximise system value and gain greater control over experimental set-up with the ProteoxTM system from Oxford Instruments. A new innovation from the pioneers in dilution refrigerator technology.

The ProteoxTM dilution refrigerator has been fully re-developed to provide an interchangeable, experimental unit that can support multiple users and a variety of experiments from a single experimental system. This is achieved by a side-loading ‘secondary insert’ module that allows samples, communications wiring and signal-conditioning components to be installed and changed whenever necessary.

Our development team have recognised that to optimise for such a wide range of applications, adaptability needs to be designed in as the very foundation of the system. This configurability allows us to offer more tailored solutions and experimental set-ups on standard lead times. It also provides our customers with maximised future-proofing against changing requirements in a dynamic research landscape.

Quantum applications are a key driving factor for cryogenic innovation, placing increasing demands on experimental volume and wiring capacity. The Proteox system addresses these market demands through increased line-of sight-access, wider plate spacings and a 50% increase in mixing chamber plate area.

Ease of use and ease of service are achieved through a fully redeveloped, web-based control system, providing remote connectivity and enhanced data visualisation capabilities. Further benefits in system control are gained through a patented gas-gap heat-switch system that can actively adjust the thermal conductivity between experimental plates.

This is the first release of a new family of Proteox dilution refrigerators that will all share the same modular layout to provide cross-compatibility and added flexibility for cryogenic installations.

Oxford Instruments will be presenting the new Proteox dilution refrigerator at the upcoming key Physics conferences, including APS March Meeting (Denver, CO, USA, 2-4 March) and the DPG March Meeting (Dresden, Germany,16-18 March).
