STREAM SPM Lab
Flow Cryostat based SPM for temperatures from < 10 K to 420 K
- STM, QPlus®-AFM & spectroscopy
- Integrated TRIBUS Head
- 3D coarse motion
- Temperature: < 10 K to 420 K
- Flow cryostat for LN2 and LHe (same flow cryostat)
- Tip & sample cold
The STREAM combines advantages of a cost effective low temperature flow cryostat platform with the attractive features of the TRIBUS SPM head including 3D coarse motion, high intrinsic stability, easy tip and sample exchange, and optical access.
The Flow Cryostat based STREAM SPM platform is purpose-built for high resolution STM, QPlus®-AFM, and spectroscopy experiments in a temperature range between < 10 K and 420 K. With the integrated thermal shield compartment, the cryostat enables operation using either LHe (< 10 K) or LN₂ (< 100 K), under stable conditions. The eﬃcient thermal shielding delivers low liquid helium consumption and high temperature stability resulting in low drift. STREAM is integrated in an extremely compact vacuum system. This modular assembly is available as a stand-alone unit or as a bolt-on option for integration into larger SPM multi-chamber UHV systems. The STREAM SPM employs the TRIBUS SPM head with 3D coarse motion for tip/ sample, high intrinsic stability, easy tip and sample exchange, and optical access.

Direct observation of glycans bonded to proteins and lipids at the single-molecule level
Proteins and lipids decorated with glycans are found throughout biological entities, playing roles in biological functions and dysfunctions. Current analytical strategies for these glycan-decorated biomolecules, termed glycoconjugates,...
