Lake Shore launch CVT Probe Tips

CVT_tipContinuously Variable Temperature (CVT) probe tips are a new design from Lake Shore Cryotronics that enable uninterrupted or unattended variable temperature measurements without the need to raise the DC/RF probe off the sample between major temperature excursions.

Fully compatible with current and previous models of Lake Shore Cryogenic Probe Stations, the integrated flexible section compensates for the thermal expansion that occurs in the probe arm when the sample stage temperature is changed. With non-CVT tips, this can result in a probe movement of approximately 500 µm between room temperature and 4 K; with CVT probe tips, this movement is eliminated.

The CVT probe tips are currently available in tungsten – with tip radius options of 10 µm and 25 µm, and beryllium copper – with a tip radius of 25 µm.
