Instrumental Equipment


Our research group currently has eight ultra-high vacuum scanning tunneling microscopes (UHV-STMs), including a combined atomic force/scanning tunneling microscope, and a transport measuring station for measuring electrical conductivities at 280mK and 10T. Three STM systems operate at low temperatures between 380mK and 6K. Another 800mK low temperature STM system 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 romm teperature high frequency STM is in the testing phase. For more information on the systems, click on the boxes.
