Nanopositioners for cryogenic research
Arktika, a new class of nanopositioner with high reliability and low heat dissipation
Onnes Technologies introduces Arktika, a new class of nanopositioner systems that is specifically tailored for the use in cryogenic environments. Due to the innovative walking principle of the piezo-drive, we offer a nanopositioner that is extremely reliable and dissipates extraordinarily little heat. Our unique drive technology has other advantages, such as high driving force, high stiffness and an integrated scanning function. Furthermore, Arktika can be connected by standard cryo-compatible wiring.
Our products are currently in development. Please contact us for availability.
- High reliability at mK
- Low heat dissipation
- Integrated sub-nm scanning function
- High holding and driving force
- High stiffness
- Standard cryo-compatible wiring
High reliability at mK
The Arktika nano-positioning system is tailored for the use in cryogenic conditions. Extensive endurance testing at 10 mK have demonstrated consistent reliability and performance. The system comprises of the Arktika LCW X1 linear cryo-walker, the Motion Controller MC X2 and easy to operate actuation and positioning PC-software.
