Laser Focus World features Siskiyou IXF mounts on cover for Los Alamos/UNM story

The July issue of Laser Focus World magazine uses a photo of a YLF:Yb crystal mounted between two top-adjustable Siskiyou IXF monolithic tip/tilt flexure mounts to illustrate their feature story on an all-solid-state optical cryocooler developed by the Los Alamos National Laboratory and the University of New Mexico.

Solid-state optical refrigeration uses anti-Stokes fluorescence to cool macroscopic objects to cryogenic temperatures without the annoying vibrations typically introduced by mechanical cryocooling systems.

The crystal was excited by a low power linearly-polarised continuous-wave fibre laser by IPG Photonics, while the temperature was monitored with a calibrated DT-670-SD silicon diode from Lake Shore Cryotronics.

Coupling the laser light to the crystal was achieved by using an astigmatic Herriott cell, with the optics held in vacuum compatible Siskiyou IXF flexure mounts…  known for their excellent mechanical and thermal properties.

Researchers in the UK or Ireland wishing to replicate this experiment can contact us for research lasers from IPG Photonics, sensors and instrumentation from Lake Shore Cryotronics, and the full range of mounts and stages from Siskiyou. Elliot Scientific can also be approached to supply optics and custom machined parts as well.

CryoLab: An elegant new solution for material characterisation measurements at low temperature

Introducing the CryoLab series from Kryoz Technologies – a fully integrated range of desktop cryocooler systems designed for rapid circuit or material characterisation measurements from ambient down to cryogenic temperatures in a fully automated manner. Doing measurements doesn’t require any experience or know-how on cryogenics, vacuum technology or thermodynamics from the user. CryoLab can be operated as a stand-alone or via the companion CryoVision software. All parameters can be seen at a glance, and switching between user-defined set-points and saved programs can be made. A smartphone app is also available.
