UHV low-temperature STM 1

 

First low-temperature UHV STM system was homemade and put into operation in 2006. The microscope is based on a Besocke- (Beetle-) type STM head and electronics from Createc. It is cooled by a rather small 4L helium bath cryostat and the working temperature is about 7 K. The instrument was continuously improved in the past and it offers in its present form excellent mechanical and electronic stability.
