PE-NK120 Nikon Integrated XY Peltier Stage
This simple to use integrated peltier stage is built into the manually operated XY table of the Eclipse series microscopes. The thermoelectrical temperature controlled element is perfectly inline with the surface of the XY table ensuring that short working distance, high numerical aperture condensers can still be used.
Linkam can supply the Nikon XY table fully modified with integrated peltier element or can modify customers existing XY table.
Using Oil Immersion Lenses
Oil immersion lenses require contact with the sample and hence act as a large heat sink drawing heat out of the sample into the lens. Microscope stages cannot control sample temperature when oil immersion lenses are used unless the lens temperature is controlled independently.
The PE-CFI60 System is required when used the Nikon CFI Plan Apochromat 60X oil immersion lens. The peltier controlled lens jacket ensures that the lens is at the same temperature as the sample when making contact with the immersion oil. A separate PE95-LinkPad is supplied with this system.
