The 0-axis stage is the most appropriate and economical choice when sample heating and cooling is required without any form of manipulation/rotation etc.
It has additional uses such as e.g. a temporary storage or static preparation table when combined with a wobble stick.
Heating and cooling option
PTS and flag style range of sample holders dock with the receiving station on each manipulator. Samples are either resistively or electron-beam or direct current heated, depending upon the requirement. They are cooled by using a manipulator mounted cryostat through which liquid nitrogen (LN2) or liquid helium (LHe) flows.
