Zero vibration cryocooling for
Electron microscopy & Beamlines
Kryoz’ microcooling technology matches with important aspects of using cryogenics in combination with beamlines including:
Cooling without any mechanical vibrations
Very small size cold tip
Cold stage induces negligible mechanical vibrations.
Extreme low thermal drift (1 – 3 nm/min).
Picture below: measurement in TEM. Sample at 100 Kelvin, resolution level <4 Angstrom.
Cold stage can be fully translated and rotated on all axis.
Interfacing design can be fully customised.
Relatively fast cool-down and heat-up.
Fully automated – push the button and cool down.
No cryogen (liquid nitrogen) handling or refilling.
Extremely small size cold finger
Size can be adjusted to required dimensions
Temperature Control for Beamlines
Since in practice there often is no off-the-shelf cryogenic solutions for beamlines, we use a product development work-flow that has proven to be reliable and result in a very high chance of success. In summary this means that the development is divided in small sub-projects, where the client has the possibility to define go-no-go milestones after every sub-project or even work package. This way all the steps from basic idea to fully functional product can be controlled in great detail.

The heat capacity of most systems is not a constant. Rather, it depends on the state variables of the thermodynamic system under study. In particular it is dependent on temperature itself.
