oxford instruments plc (OXIG) Key Developments

Oxford University Selects Oxford Instruments's Triton Dilution Refrigerator

Oxford University has selected Oxford Instruments's Triton Cryofree dilution refrigerator to support the development of quantum electronic technologies. The Triton dilution refrigerator enables scientists to cool samples and devices to a base temperature of less than 10 mK, and there are over 250 systems installed worldwide in leading Universities and research institutes. This is this third Triton system to be installed at the Materials Department in Oxford University, and like the previous systems it is equipped with a 6/1/1 Tesla vector rotation magnet and Oxford Instruments' bottom-loading sample exchange mechanism. The sample loading functionality substantially reduces the sample turnaround time of the system, from around two days to less than 8 hours without compromising the achievable temperature.

Oxford Instruments and Green Imaging Unveil GeoSpec2+

Oxford Instruments plc and Green Imaging Technologies Inc. have unveiled GeoSpec2+, a new NMR core analyzer from the GeoSpec range. The two companies have combined their NMR knowledge and experience to once again advance NMR measurement capabilities in the oil and gas sector. The GeoSpec2+ features a completely new compact electronics console with upgraded performance and a new suite of monitoring and diagnostic software. This means that users now have better than ever control over the quality and traceability of their results. The operational software has also been upgraded, with improved facilities for advanced users to define their own protocols and applications, so in-house methods can be developed and implemented easily on other sites. The GeoSpec range of analyzers now comprises industry standard 2MHz units (accommodating a range of sample sizes from half inch to 6 inches diameter), 12MHz units for increased sensitivity when working with low porosity samples and 20MHz instruments for a short echo performance allowing even the tight rocks to be analyzed. A dedicated overburden cell (the P5 Cell) is available for most models. The P5 Cell provides NMR users with the technology to pressurize rock core samples up to 5,000 psi and heat them to 100°C, allowing them to make measurements as close to reservoir conditions as possible.

Oxford Instruments plc Launches X-Max Extreme

Oxford Instruments plc launched X-Max Extreme, a silicon drift detector for ultra-high resolution FEG and FIB-SEM applications. This unique detector for the first time enables EDS data collection at very low kV (e.g. between 1kV and 3kV) and a very short working distance to provide elemental analysis under the conditions used to analyze nano-materials and surfaces at the highest SEM resolution. The latest ultra-high resolution FEG-SEMs offer exciting new capabilities for investigating smaller nano-structures, interfaces and surfaces. However, under the operating conditions used to make use of new electron signal contrasts from in-lens detectors - very short working distance, very low kV and minimal beam current - no traditional SDD could provide supporting elemental characterization. The new X-Max Extreme changes this. X-Max Extreme is based on a windowless 100mm2 detector; it uses a radical geometry to enable data acquisition under short working distance. With X-Max Extreme, both imaging and EDS performance can be performed simultaneously and the EDS resolution approaches that of the SEM.
