A Multibeam Ion (Helium & Neon) Microscope for Sub-10nm Nanostructuring
The Olympus BX51 upright microscope offers reflection mode (for opaque samples) and transmission light illumination.
Low Temperature: 4K – 300K; Variable Temperature: 300K – 900K
Ultra-high vacuum (better than 5 x 10-11 mbar)
MPMS sample magnetometers use SQUID technology to achieve high sensitivity, dynamic range and reproducibility. The MPMS can resolve magnetic moment changes as small as 10-8 emu over a wide range of temperatures and fields.
The PPMS is an open architecture system which is able to perform a number of automated measurements over a standard temperature range of 400-1.8K. The LCN system is equipped with a 14T longitudinal magnet and the ability to cool down to 0.35K using a helium 3 probe.
The LCN currently has one Bruker Nanowizard 1 AFM mainly to provide high resolution imaging and mechanical information of biological samples using a closed feedback loop to ensure precise positioning in the X,Y and Z dimensions.
