Cryogenic Temperataure Sensors - Cernox from Lake Shore Cryotronics

Cernox™ thin film resistance cryogenic temperature sensors offer significant advantages over comparable bulk or thick film resistance sensors. The smaller package size of these thin film sensors makes them useful in a broader range of experimental mounting schemes, and they are also available in a chip form. They are easily mounted in packages designed for excellent heat transfer, yielding a characteristic thermal response time much faster than possible with bulk devices requiring strain-free mounting. Additionally, they have been proven very stable over repeated thermal cycling and under extended exposure to ionizing radiation.

Key Features

Key features of the Cernox cryogenic temperature sensors include:

  • Low magnetic field- induced errors
  • Temperature range of 100 mK to 420 K (model dependent)
  • High sensitivity at low temperatures and good sensitivity over a broad range
  • Excellent resistance to ionizing radiation
  • Bare die cryogenic temperature sensor with fast characteristic thermal response times: 1.5 ms at 4.2 K, 50 ms at 77 K
  • Broad selection of models to meet your thermometry needs
  • Excellent stability
  • Variety of packaging options
