UHV low-temperature STM 2

 

Second low-temperature microscope is modified Createc beetle-type STM. It is cooled by a larger custom-made 8L helium bath cryostat from CryoVac. The base temperature is below 5K and the helium cooled manipulator enables cooling of the sample close to LHe temperatures. The system offers standard apparatus for sample preparation (annealing, sputtering, evaporation, LEED/AES). Currently we are using the system to experiment with high frequency (RF) signal detection.
