These devices are the original commercial cryogenic strain cells. They are a low-cost option to strain small samples at low temperature and under high magnetic field. The smallest variant, the CS100 is compatible with a 1-inch bore, such as a Quantum Design PPMS/Dynacool. The integrated sensor in the CS1X0 series measures applied displacement.
The FC1X0 series strain cells are high-performance cryogenic stress cells, capable of applying large forces at cryogenic temperature and high magnetic field. They have an outer diameter of 25.4 mm making them compatible with a Quantum Design PPMS/Dynacool. The integrated sensor in the FC1X0 series measures applied force.
The UC200 is a high-performance cell that can be used to measure, stress, strain and the elastic properties of materials at cryogenic temperature and low magnetic field. The integrated sensors measure both Force and Displacement.
The CS2X0 strain cells are have a large optical access cone allowing a range of transmission-mode, beamline or XRS measurement to be performed without the probe beam needing to pass through the titanium of the device. These variants are mainly used at synchrotrons and other beam-line facilities. The integrated sensor measures applied displacement.
These devices are designed for use in UHV systems for use in conjunction with e.g. UHV, ARPES and MOKE probes. Their ultra-small footprint fits the standard Flag-style vacuum transfer systems (omicron sample plates). These devices are entirely mechanical with strain applied using a differential screw turned using a wobble stick and force is indicated using a needle dial.
In additional to the numerous accessories linked to from our stress/strain cell product pages, we also provide a range of additional products that may be used as part of a strain experiment or for completely unrelated physics experiments.
