Product Accessories

This page details the accessories available for the CS100 series and FC100 series cryogenic stress/strain cells. The accessories described include the power supply necessary to power the cell, the wiring platform for attaching the wires to the sample as well as the various sample mounting plates for mounting the sample horizontally or on-edge to be compatible with transmission-mode probes. A full modification of a quantum design PPMS probe for strain measurements is also offered.

Sample Plates

  • Semi-disposable sample plates and spacers for mounting samples to the strain cell
  • Commercially pure titanium - high strength and thermally matched to the stress or strain cell
  • Compatible with the CS100 and FC100 family of stress/strain cells
  • Versions designed so that the sample can be mounted horizontally for transmission-mode measurements also available
  • Sample plates and spacers available in packs of twenty.


PPMS Strain Probe

For our latest offering, we have teamed up with Quantum Design to offer a Razorbill Instruments version of an official QD multi-function probe. This probe will be compatible with any Quantum design PPMS and have all the required cabling, connectors and vacuum feedthroughs to enable immediate strain measurements at cryogenic temperature with minimal of customer set-up required.

  • Modified version of an official Quantum DesignP450A Multi-function Probe (MFP) for strain measurements.
  • No need to modify your existing PPMS or design a custom yoke.
  • Vacuum feedthrough and appropriate cabling already installed.
  • Monitor your sample temperature using a thermometer installed on the cell.
  • Ensure the strained sample is located precisely in the magnet centre.
