The PanScan Freedom is the world’s first closed-cycle cryogen-free UHV SPM system. Cryogen-free SPMs have been the dream of scientists for many years. The market disruptive technology embodied in the PanScan Freedom provides low-temperature scanning probe microscope functionality at temperatures previously only achieved with liquid helium flow cryostats. The Pan Scan Freedom is perfect for researchers who would have never previously considered a cryogenic SPM due to the high cost and complicated operation. The PanScan Freedom’s ease of operation and low cost of ownership will provide a dramatic improvement in all STM, spectroscopy and AFM measurements. Lower noise, more stable tip and sample, and dramatically lower drift greatly improves productivity.
