The CS202-DMX-2 offers a wide range of flexibility for x-ray diffraction experiments. These systems can come equipped with beryllium domes (DMX-2D), beryllium windows, or Kapton windows.

The lightweight nature of the DE-202, along with the customizable instrumentation feedthrough, make this cryocooler ideal for goniometers and diffractometers. This system is commonly teamed up with Huber and Newport goniometers along with Bruker diffractometers. The Huber 512.12 cryostat carrier was designed to integrate seamlessly with the CS202G-DMX-2D.

The CS202-DMX-2 is powered by our DE-202 series closed cycle cryocooler. This liquid helium-free cryostat uses a pneumatically driven Gifford-McMahon cycle to extract heat from the system.
