The Quantum Microscope

Onnes Technologies enables the application of quantum sensors for quantum metrology applications in low temperature and low vibration level environments. With our cryogenic Vibration Isolation System cVIS, vibrations generated by the pulse tube to cooldown, can be attenuated and isolated from the quantum sensor. And, with our arQtika cryogenic nanopositioning, based on cryo-walking technology, sensor and sample can be moved with respect to each other while preserving the low temperature and low vibration levels at all times.

arQtika LCW X1

Piezo-based cryogenic nanopositioner for low temperature environments

We offer a cryogenic nanopositioner that is extremely reliable and dissipates extraordinary little heat. Therefore arQtika enables thermal stability during long range, accurate positioning and as such eliminates the need for additional piezo scanner components.

In-situ, passive, cryogenic Vibration Isolation System

cVIS is an in-situ solution for any closed-cycle dilution refrigerator to attenuate mechanical vibrations generated by the pulse tube. cVIS enables a low vibration level environment inside your cryostat.

The next step in cryo-positioning

The benefits of CRYO-WALKING technology

Our cryo-walking technology is a novel alternative to the conventional slip-stick technique. Instead of relying on the difference of static and dynamic friction, cryo-walking is based on making and breaking mechanical connection. This allows to inherently solve a lot of the cryogenic nanopositioning limitations encountered in low temperature physics.
