Many applications in industrial and medical research as well as in fundamental research require cryogenic temperatures often well below 10 Kelvin. Additionally, in many cases it is not only necessary to cool samples but also to mechanically manipulate them precisely within the cryostat.
SmarAct has developed stick-slip linear and rotation stages with low-heat profiles and ultra-high vacuum compatibility which allow sample manipulation in temperatures down to the millikelvin regime.
Resistive cabling (based on phosphor bronze) is optionally available to reduce the heat load on the positioning stages. They can also be used at temperatures of up to 330 K like our standard UHV stages. Furthermore, they are bakeable at temperatures of up to +150 °C. For the use in high magnetic fields at cryogenic temperatures, non-magnetic versions are available.
Cryogenic stages can be easily assembled into complete positioning systems including thermalization management and customization to your specific application.
