SH1, SH2 & SM2 Sample Holders

The standard SH1 sample mounting module has a relative magnetic permeability of <1.005, making the ideal choice for low energy experimentation.


The SH1 provides one axis of rotation about the centre of the manipulator.

Two different offset positions available;

a) The SH2E50 will provide move the sample away from the centre axis,

b) The SH2R64 moves the sample position 64mm above the central axis.

As with all the manipulation range, this module is fully compatible for both the heating and cooling modules making it the perfect multidiscipline two axis sample mounting module.

Note: totally non-magnetic version are available
