By serving researchers working on cutting-edge techniques, we understand standard options may be limiting for certain applications. In these cases, custom designed parts and modifications are required to create something nobody else has done before. A team of dedicated application specialists and custom design engineers are available to work with you to create a one-of-a-kind […]



The Montana Instruments Cryostation platforms can incorporate precision nanopositioning stages for translating, rotating, or tilting your sample. These are integrated directly into the sample space and include flexible thermal links which provide a thermal connection between the sample and cold platform while still allowing for full stage motion.

A family of electrical mounts allow the user to pre-mount samples on small chips or circuit boards to easily make electrical connections. These have been specially designed to work with other mounts and configurations, with an emphasis on preserving thermal performance.

The Agile Temperature Sample Mount provides the solution for the highest level of positional stability for step-static and dynamic temperature changes from 4K to 350K while improving the speed to each set point. The unique position stabilizing support structure optimizes stage mechanical stiffness and rigidity while providing the thermal performance required for fast temperature changes. The structure reduces thermal contraction to below 30µm over the entire temperature range from less than 4K to 350K. This technology eliminates the need to re-focus after small temperature changes. Ultimately, you can be confident that an optimized focus will remain stable throughout a measurement.

A series of fixed and adjustable sample mounts, stages, and holders are available in both stock and custom designs. A summary of these options is listed below:

For sample mounting requiring electrical connections, piezo-actuated motion/positioning, or temperature control of the sample, please refer to the various special purpose categories on Stages & Sample Mounting Options. Many of the options below are compatible with these special purpose mounts.



On most systems, both the outer vacuum housing (warm) and inner radiation shield (cold) windows may be easily replaced by the user within minutes. A variety of optical materials are available for different wavelengths and applications. The standard option is a VIS-NIR (400-1000nm) with Anti-Reflective (AR) coating.
