Low-temperature scanning tunneling microscope with supplements (LT STM)
Manufacturer: Specs GmbH
Year: 2012

With equipment allows (beside sample preparation) measurements with low-temperature STM at temperatures below 1K, which results in an exellent energy resolution.

Components and Specifications:

  • Joule-Thomson stage below a LHe bath cryostat,
  • vacuum chambers, valves and pumps (turbo, ion and titanium sublimation pump)and pressure gauge,
  • helium transfer lines, liquid helium level indicato,
  • ion gun for sample sputterin,
  • powerfull optical system with lateral resolution of about 40 um (including CCD sensor and cold light source,
  • pressure in main chamber and in chamber for sample preparation bellow10-10 mba,
  • UHV transport system for samples and STM tip,
  • sample temperature<1 K, it is possible to use samples with up to 10×10mm surface are,
  • possibility of upgrading with magnetic field (up to 3T).
