arQtika LCW X1

Linear Cryo-Walker

The arQtika LCW X1 is a versatile linear nanopositioner with integrated capacitive positioning sensor. arQtika performs reliably at mK conditions with unprecedented thermal efficiency. The arQtika can be driven in both walking mode (200 nm steps) and scanning mode (sub-nm resolution). The arQtika is also available in an XY or XYZ configuration. It has a holding and driving force of around 5N, enabling applications with vertical displacement of heavy probes or samples. arQtika LCW X1 is powered by standard cryo-compatible wiring. Specifications are included in the brochure.


2-Axis Motion Controller

The MC X2 is a motion control system to drive up to two arQtika LCW X1 nanopositioners independently. The motion controller is mountable in a 19” rack and is connected to a laptop/PC via USB. Wiring to connect to the arQtika can be provided at request. Specifications are included in the brochure.


Control software

arQtika LCW X1 and Motion Controller MC X2 are controlled by PC based software. We provide LabVIEW modules with full access to all functions and system parameters. We also provide simple and easy to use software for basic actuation and positioning of the arQtika.
