Oxford Instruments’ unique depth of technical expertise and hands-on engineering experience in the design, manufacture and support of superconducting magnets and cryogenic systems enables us to provide sample environments for neutron scattering as selected by the world’s leading neutron facilities. High field and low/ultra-low temperature sample environments are provided by advanced coil geometry, split-pair superconducting magnet systems with helium-recondensing, Cryofree®, or conventionally helium-cooled cryostats. These now also offer Active Shielding on high field, wide angle split pair systems to reduce magnetic footprint, and options of asymmetric and dual symmetric/asymmetric mode for inclusion of polarised neutron experiments.


Cryogenic systems for neutron scattering have a number of very specific requirements that are unique to this application.  Janis has supplied cryogenic systems configured for neutron scattering to user facilities around the world.  Janis has supplied versatile systems for use in multiple experiments, as well as systems that are tailored for specific experiments.  Our Cryogenic Physicist, Rachael Floyd, will be at the workshop and available to discuss your requirements.

attocube is the technology leader for nano-precise piezo positioning stages and ultra-compact fiber-based laser displacement sensor, compatible with extreme environmental conditions such as ultra-high vacuum, magnetic field, radiation exposure, as well as cryogenic to elevated operating temperatures. The portfolio includes linear, goniometric, rotational piezo stages, hexapods, and customized precision positioning solutions, as well as a modular interferometer with a broad range of sensor heads, all working with nanometer accuracy. Customized engineering solutions are developed for cutting-edge applications, always optimized for the specific customer requirements. For example, the ongoing development of stiff goniometers used in dilution fridges for neutron triple-axis spectrometry.


CryoVac is a long established company based in Germany and the leading supplier for customized cryogenic solutions.

We offer a broad range of cryogenic equipment, open/closed cycle (refrigerator) systems, with sizes ranging from table top to room size cryostat. We offer systems from the mK-range up to 800K. We have provide solutions for nearly all experimental requirements at low temperature.

We offer a broad-range of accessories, e.g. temperature-controller, transfer-line, etc..

Design and engineering of our systems is done in close cooperation with our customers, starting from the first idea and initial design, to ensure the best solution for your experiment or application. You can either choose from a broad-range of starting-designs, customizable to the very last detail or challenge us with your unique problem.


Taiyo Koko Co., Ltd. manufactures various vanadium products. There is a vanadium sample holder in it. The vanadium sample holder is used for neutron scattering experiments. In the vanadium sample holder with a thickness of 0.1mm, the Bragg peak derived from vanadium is very small. In addition, we developed a sample holder of same thickness made by ‘Null-alloy’.

We provide our customers with superior sample holders for neutron scattering experiments.


Based in Wellington, New Zealand, HTS-110 has been an innovator in design and manufacture of a range of superconducting magnets utilizing High Temperature Superconducting (HTS) wire since 2004. Taking full advantage of the properties of HTS wire, HTS-110 supplies custom cryogen-free magnets to the world’s leading neutron and synchrotron facilities. These magnets feature compactness, low fringe field, fast ramping rate and low maintenance and operating costs; they are very robust and easy to operate. These advantages make HTS magnets especially suited to neutron and synchrotron x-ray scattering experiments where user space may be restricted and complex geometries are required; or where the magnetic field needs to be changed regularly, or rotated relative to the beam.


AS Special Devices is a company dedicated to the manufacturing of scientific instrumentation, particularly in the field of the sample environment.
