Single Crystal X-ray Diffraction (SC-XRD)

Low Temperature Devices

The advantages of collecting single crystal X-ray diffraction data at low temperatures have long been recognized by the scientific community. With the availability of efficient and reliable devices and publications reporting the use of low temperature have massively increased over the recent years. The technique offers a number of advantages:

Typically, a temperature range from 300 K to 80 K is sufficient and covers a wide range of low temperature experiments.

  • Cryostream 800 and 800 Plus (Oxford Cryosystems)
  • Cobra (Oxford Cryosystems)

Temperatures of less than 80 K can be achieved using Helium-based low temperature systems, such as the

  • n-Helix
Low and High Temperature Device

Cryostream 800 and 800 Plus

The Cryostream is offered in two versions: The Cryostream 800 for cooling of the sample (80 – 400 K) and the Cryostream 800 Plus for those needing high temperatures (80 – 500 K) in addition. It is fully integrated with the D8 QUEST and the D8 VENTURE.

Our newly developed support mounts from the ceiling of the enclosure to avoid any restriction of the 2-theta range. The transfer line and cables are directed through the labyrinth of the radiation safety enclosure to maintain 100% X-ray safety.

  • Fast cool-down to 100 K in just 20 minutes
  • Low LN2 consumption
  • Variable flow of either 5 or 10 liter/minute for greater flexibility
  • Highly accurate mapping of temperature at crystal position
  • “Fast Start” option
  • LN2 can be refilled without affecting crystal temperature
Low Temperature Device

Cobra

The Cobra is a non-liquid nitrogen low temperature device, offered in two versions: The Cobra reaches temperatures at the sample between 80 K and 400 K and the Cobra Plus offers a wider range for those needing high temperatures (80 – 500 K). Both versions are fully integrated with the D8 QUEST and the D8 VENTURE.

Our newly developed support mounts from the ceiling of the enclosure to avoid any restriction of the 2-theta range. The transfer line and cables are directed through the labyrinth of the radiation safety enclosure to maintain 100% X-ray safety.

  • Fast cool-down time (40 minutes to 100 K)
  • Stability of 0.1 K
