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.
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.
Low Temperature MicroscopyWe offer a nanopositioner that is extremely reliable and dissipates extraordinarily little heat. Our unique drive technology has other advantages, such as high driving
Quantum OpticsAligning optical fibers and objectives at Kelvin temperatures for Quantum Optics experiments often require low drift and reliable position sensing. Well controlled positioning with an integrated capacitance-based sensor open the path towards complete automation of experiments.
CDMS DetectorsLow Temperature Detectors are used for in-space applications. The robust and stiff design of arQtika offer a platform for detector calibration that is launchable into space.
