HCS302G Gas Tight Hot and Cold Stage
The HCS302G features a gas-tight sample chamber which can be gas purged to prevent condensation or to make measurements under a controlled atmosphere and at a set temperature. Top and bottom dual pane windows on the HCS302G stage are removable and exchangeable to meet a range of spectroscopic needs. The stage can be mounted vertically, allowing horizontal beam access to the sample chamber. An inner thermal cover is also included for work requiring ultra-high temperature stability and uniformity.
The HCS302G is a versatile and budget-friendly option for experiments requiring atmospheric control.
• Programmable precision temperature from -190°C to 400°C
• Gas-tight sample chamber
• Removable and exchangeable windows
• Integrated aperture window defrost system
• Inner cover for improved sample temperature uniformity
• Vertical and horizontal mounting points
• Optional microscope stage mounting adapters available
