The Model I

A cryogen-free table-top dilution refrigerator designed specifically for rapid sample exchange and easy one-operator use.  Mountable on an optical table, with free space or fibre optic access, the Model I will revolutionize the way you perform mK experiments. 


Model Highlights


Need another dilution refrigerator but don't have space in the lab?  Now you do!  With a footprint of just 1.8 m2 the Model I can be easily added to your lab.

Fast Cool-Down

Designed to be capable of exceeding expectations, the Model I takes less than 22 hours to reach 30 mK

Four-Year Warranty

Warranty is included on all parts and accessories manufactured by Zero Point Cryogenics


Model Overview

The Model I is a complete rethinking of the traditional dilution refrigerator, designed at every stage to make operation simple and straightforward.  Samples can be exchanged rapidly from the top plate, or the fridge can opened completely when rewiring is required.  With a cool-down time of less than 24 hours, rapid warm-up heaters installed standard, and reliable long-term operation, the Model I will keep your experiments running around the clock.  The compact footprint of the Model I will allow you to add a dilution refrigerator where you never thought possible, and the intuitive touchscreen control means you don't have to be a low-temperature expert to access mK temperatures.



Despite its compact size, the Model I performs as you would expect from a dilution refrigerator many times its size.  With a typical base temperature of 10 mK and cooling powers above 250 microW at 100 mK,  the 150-mm-diameter mixing-chamber plate has more than enough performance for standard low-temperature experiments. With a cool-down time of less than 24 hours after rapid sample exchange, the Model I will soon be a workhorse in your lab.
