Agile Temperature Sample Mount (ATSM)
Overview and demonstration of the Agile Temperature Sample Mount for a cryogenic platform. This sample mount provides the highest level of positional stability for step-static and dynamic temperature changes while improving the speed to each set point.
Alignment, Imaging, and Use of the Cryo-Optic®
This video explains how to align an objective inside the Cryo-Optic®, how to image your sample, and how to use the Cryo-Optic® software interface and secondary back-up heater.
Assembling the Vertical Cryo-Optic®
This video shows how to assemble the Montana Instruments Cryo-Optic® within the 50 mm sample space.
Cryo-Optic®: High NA Imaging
Overview of the Cryo-Optic® technology on the Cryostation®. The Cryo-Optic® integrates a room temperature objective in vacuum into the cryogenic sample space for virtually drift-free high NA imaging at low temperatures. (Note: While this video features our vertical configuration, the Cryo-Optic® technology is also available in horizontal configurations for our larger platform sizes.)
Cryostation® UI | Interactive Temperature and Vacuum Graphs
Overview of the Cryostation® Galaxy software illustrating how to access and manipulate the real-time graphical data display.
Cryostation® UI | ATSM - Primary Operations
Typical use for the ATSM Primary Operations: Cooldown, Warmup, Vent and Pull Vacuum with the Agile Temperature Sample Mount module.

How to Recharge the Helium Compressor
This video shows the steps involved in recharging the compressor and cold head with helium. Users should expect to do a helium recharge every 18-24 months to keep the system running optimally.
Installing a 3-axis Nanopositioner Stack
This video demonstrates how to install a nanopositioner with thermal flex link assembly into the Cryostation® sample space.
Mounting a Thermometer in Your Cryostation®
Knowing the temperature of your sample in the cryostat is very important. To get good measurements, you must have a strong thermal connection to your sample area (ie. mounting) while minimizing the heat flow through the connecting wires to the sensor (ie. lagging). This video explains proper mounting and lagging techniques on several types of sample mounts.
Optimizing Your Cryostation® System Performance
This video describes how to get the best performance out of your Cryostation® in terms of temperature and vibration by optimizing both internal and external environments.
