Are you looking for ultimate flexibility for your cryogenic quantum optics experiments? Then replace your existing flow cryostat with our attoDRY800 - and get the optical table for free!

attoDRY800 touchscreen

attoDRY800 installed at University of Oxford

A recent installation of the attoDRY800 cryo-optical table at the University of Oxford, UK illustrates the push-button handling of our system: first proof of principle high resolution optical measurements were obtained only a few hours after installation. The system reached a base temperature of 3.7 K and a cooling power of 95 mW at 4.2 K, with more than 30 thermalized wires installed. The vacuum level is around 1e-5 mbar before cooldown.

Replace also your flow cryostat with this ingenious new concept: a cold breadboard uniquely integrated into an optical table for unobstructed access to your cold sample.

Closed loop motion controller with enhanced functionality

Our closed loop controller ANC350 for low temperature positioners has undergone a complete redesign, featuring significant improvements in terms of usability and performance:

  • linearity enhancement for /RES encoders by factor of 8
  • pre configured calibration files for all NUM/NUM+ encoders
  • faster closed loop control with 250x faster encoder sampling rate
  • touchscreen based user interface
  • intuitive remote control via SpaceNavigator®

ECS Lift

Lift heavy loads of up to 1.8 kg also in vacuum

attocube now offers the perfect solution for positioning applications with high load lifting requirements. Nanometer precision over tens of millimeter ranges and lifting heavy equipment is no longer a contradiction – even in vacuum. Customers can choose between dedicated high load (/HL) versions with dynamic forces up to 7 N, and a retrofit upgrade kit (ECS Lift), which enables spring-assisted lifting of more than 1.8 kg.
