Electrical Transport Measurements

Key Specifications


  • Compatible with our wet Integra magnet systems.
  • Top-loading of the sample directly into the 3He/4He mixing chamber ensures good sample thermalisation, high stability of the thermal environment and optimum operation in high magnetic fields.
  • Multi-service, multi-user access: unique design which can be used with a range of sample probes such as a mechanical rotator or high frequency co-axial lines.
  • Quick and easy sample change: no need to remove the mixture during sample change, giving quicker experiment turnaround times.
  • Non metallic sample environment: ideal for experiments such as solid state NMR, where removing metallic material surrounding the pickup coil resonant circuit, is key to accurate measurements.
  • Delivered with a gas handling system, which enables automatic operation of a dilution refrigerator using sophisticated software and virtual instrument drivers for LabVIEW.

Options / Accessories

34 mm diameter sample probes for sample-in-liquid experiments at high magnetic fields. The probe comes with a vacuum lock and sliding seal for safe loading into the mixture as well as thermometry and heater for temperature control. Our standard probe has 10 spare connector ports at room temperature for installation of RF and DC wiring and a dedicated port for installation of a rotator drive rod.

Choose between twisted pairs of constantan, copper or NbTi for low frequency measurements, flexible stainless steel coaxes for MHz signals or semi-rigid stainless steel coaxes for up to 18 GHz. Alternative wiring materials and attenuators available on request.

Mechanical rotator with 15 x 15 mm sample space allows for 260 degree polar rotation in high magnetic fields. Automated stepper motor control using MercuryiTC.
