Description

These retractable cryostats from Mirion are used with Si(Li), LEGe™, and Ultra-LEGe™ detectors in x-ray applications. Retractable cryostats provide a means of moving the detector element in relation to the sample with both under vacuum. They also make it possible to operate the detector in windowless mode, i.e. without a window (absorber) between the detector element and the sample. 

As with any detector that is not permanently sealed, care must be exercised in using windowless detectors to avoid contamination of the detector element. The vacuum chamber to which the detector is attached must be clean and dry and under good vacuum before the gate valve is opened. Under no circumstances is the detector to be exposed to atmosphere while it is cold. Damage to detectors caused by contamination is not covered under warranty.
