HILA Workstation

Montana Instruments

HILA Workstation The HILA (High Inertia, Low Acceleration) Workstation was designed to provide an ultra-stable mechanical environment for cryogenic measurements. The system leverages advanced vibration isolation technology featuring a very low natural frequency together with mass compensation technology for full isolation of external vibrations. Energy within the sample space is minimized, creating the ideal environment for sensitive SPM or resonant cavity applications.
