cryo-neaSCOPE+xs – pioneering instrument for nanoscale optical imaging & spectroscopy in extreme cryogenic environment
cryo-neaSCOPE+xs enables near-field optical nanoimaging and nanospectroscopy at extreme cryogenic temperatures. It features high-quality near-field measurements in an unmatched spectral range from visible to IR and even THz frequencies. The system thus provides access to a full range of relevant energy scales and allows studying physical phenomena at temperatures down and below 10 K. cryo-neaSCOPE+xs is based on a fully automated dry cryostat for easy cryogen-free operation with fastest in class turnaround times. The system provides confocal access to the sample and natively supports electrical transport measurements via integrated feedthroughs for ultimate cryogenic research.
