Temperature & Temperature Stability

The Cryostation was designed for both vibration and temperature stability of the sample. This stability of the sample space is a unique performance differentiator among closed cycle cryostats and enables many experiments which otherwise would not be possible. Temperature stability is achieved by combining a mechanical design that promotes thermal stability along with an electronic design that can measure and control the temperature with a high level of precision.


The temperature stability the Cryostation can achieve varies at different temperatures. The data points below show the typical temperature stability of a Cryostation s50 throughout the 3K – 350K temperature range. This data was taken using the standard ‘automatic mode’ with a thermally damped sample mount. Better thermal stability results can be achieved by running the compressor in manual mode (learn more about compressor settings here). Thermal stability can also be improved even further through custom designs. Please contact us to learn more about these options.

*The values measured represent typical results, not specifications. Results may vary with different configurations. 

Long-Term Temperature Stability

The graph below shows an example of long term temperature stability (Cryostation s50). The temperature was logged approximately every 30 seconds over a span of 11 hours. This shows a peak to peak variation of <5mK over 24 hours.
