Janis — a Lake Shore Company

The SuperTran product line has long been an industry standard for continuous flow cryogenic systems. Now, with the introduction of the recirculating gas cooler, these cryostats can be cooled without the need for liquid cryogens.

  • All the flexibility and convenience of a continuous flow cryostat without liquid helium
  • Fast sample change without warming up the RGC4 cooler
  • Excellent thermal performance
  • Low vibration – vibration data available upon request
  • Compatible with most existing SuperTran cryostats
  • Order a new cryostat with a transfer line and choose to operate using LN2, LHe, or cryogen-free

The Janis RGC4-ST500 is an ultra-stable cryogenic microscopy platform, cooling samples, and devices to 4 K without the use of liquid helium. A closed loop of helium gas is cooled by a low-vibration pulse-tube cryocooler. The cold helium gas travels to the ST-500 microscopy cryostat through a flexible vacuum insulated transfer line. The gas cools the ST-500 sample mount heat exchanger, vacuum mounted sample, and thermal radiation shield before returning to the cryocooler for continuous recirculation.

Typical applications include micro-PL, micro-Raman, and high special resolution imaging. The Model RGC4 pulse tube-cooled system can also be used with the ST-100 optical workhorse, the ST-200 non-optical system, the ST-300 compact unit for use in a magnet, the ST-400 UHV configuration, the ST-500 microscopy configuration, and the ST-500 based probe station.
