New motorized probe insertion system

February 24, 2014

The new motorized probe system uses a long edge-welded bellows, driven by a microprocessor controlled motor, to allow easy insertion/removal of the experimental probe from the cryostat.

Apart from the obvious advantage of being incredibly easy to use this also allows us to build a probe with no sliding seals (which can leak), giving great freedom when it comes to adding/removing wiring, co-axial lines etc...

See a video of the bellows in action below!
