Our cryogen-free bolometers are designed for unattended, continuous cold operation.

Benefits

  • No unexpected warmups and no need for expensive liquid helium

  • Interfaces to major spectrometers

  • Ultra low vibration

  • Noise and sensitivity on par with wet systems

  • No decrease in performance when operated at 50Hz

  • Water or air cooled compressor
