Electrical Transport Measurements

Our wet systems provide the lowest vibration environment for sensitive scanning probe microscopy measurements.

Scanning Probe Microscopy

Spin processing and data storage studies using high magnetic fields and low temperatures.



  • Options of standard 18 T or 20 T magnet, operating at 4.2 K, with 52 mm magnet bore
  • Low-loss cryostat with liquid nitrogen cooled radiation shield and combination LTS/HTS current leads optimised for low helium boil off operation during magnet field ramping and persistent mode use
  • Compatible with our KelvinoxTLM top-loading 15 mK dilution refrigerator and with our 1.5 to 300 K, 30 mm sample space or 1.5 to 200 K, 37 mm sample space variable temperature insert (VTI)

Options / Accessories

The MercuryiPS is an intelligent fully configurable magnet power supply system. It enables automated control of a wide range of superconducting magnets, including NMR, high field, beamline and Vector Rotate magnet systems. MercuryiPS is a bi-polar, high-stability, four quadrant power supply with incorporated quench protection. It includes temperature control of the main high-power sense resistor to prevent output current drift. The MercuryiPS is fully controllable by remote command via TCP/IP, USB, RS232 or optional GPIB.


The MercuryiTC is a versatile cryogenic environment controller. In its basic form it includes a single channel high-resolution (24 bit) temperature measurement circuit which supports all the standard cryogenic sensors (ruthenium oxide, cernox, silicon diodes, platinum, thermocouple and RhFe). With the constant voltage mode it enables reliable, accurate temperature measurement using negative temperature sensors (NTC) down to below 250 mK. The base unit enables PID loop configuration control of a single heater output up to 80 Watts (40 V, 2 A).
