Slimline cryostats are designed so that the detector and electronics both fit in a cylindrical housing without any protruding flanges, valves, and preamplifier enclosures.
This compact configuration facilitates integration into shields and systems. Maintenance or exchange of the preamplifier is also very simple as it is located underneath the cylindrical cover, outside of the cryostat vacuum.
Vertical Slimline Dipstick cryostats can be fitted with a Remote-Detector Chamber (RDC). This RDC option separates the detector chamber from the Dewar and preamplifier and allows the use of a backshield so the lead shield completely surrounds the detector element.
Additionally the offset between the centerline of the RDC element and the cryostat coldfinger removes any direct "line-of-sight" between the detector chamber and the molecular sieves.
This design significantly reduces the radiation background on the detector. Standard lengths for the RDC option are 2, 4, 6, 8 and 10 inches. Custom lengths are available upon request.
End cap dimensions depend on detector size. The chart (see data sheet) shows the typical efficiency range vs. end-cap diameter. End cap lengths are also greater for larger detectors. Consult the factory if end-cap size is critical in your application.
