HFS Probe Systems for Temperature-Controlled Microscope Stage

The HFS Probe systems are developed on the basis of the temperature control technology that powers the THMS600 heating and freezing stages. The dynamic heating and cooling performance enables covering several electrical component temperature control applications.

It is possible to connect up to four positional gold-tipped, tungsten probes (other types can be used) to electrical connectors inside the sample chamber, thereby allowing the user to carry out electrical measurements on the sample as well as precisely controlling the temperature within a gas-tight environment. The sample is simply positioned on the heating element and the probes are manually moved to create contact at the precise points. The outstanding positional resolution of the probes enables accurate contact points to be created easily. It is also possible to use this system vertically.

The LNP96 liquid nitrogen cooling system can be incorporated to cool samples from ambient temperature down to −196 °C.
