Instrumentation

Our research group currently operates eight ultra-high vacuum scanning tunneling microscopes (UHV-STMs), including a combined atomic force/scanning tunneling microscope, and a transport measuring system for measuring electrical conductivities at 280mK and 10T. Three STM systems operate at low temperatures (6K, 600mK and 380mK). Another low temperature STM system (800mK) is under construction, as well as a dry STM system that uses a pulse tube cooler and is expected to reach 1K. A 4-tip high frequency STM (room temperature, 400ps) is in the testing phase. For more information on the systems, click on the fields below.
