Quantum computers and networks are steadily moving out of the lab and into real commercial applications. Ultra-low temperature environments are necessary for the operation of these machines. To achieve this researchers are forced to consume liquid He in large amounts. As the price of He continues to grow scientists search for ways to mitigate the cost with closed-cycle sources.

In this talk we focus on key developments within ARS to address key concerns of researchers performing these experiments, such as lower temperatures, ultra-low vibrations and accelerations, high magnetic fields, and optical access. Our new solutions will benefit scientist studying single photon emitters (QD, NV centers, etc.), 2D materials, micro-cavities, superconducting circuits, and other components relying on a high-degree of quantum coherence. ARS is developing innovative cryostats to extend scientific investigation into the quantum world and preserve natural resources with He management tools.

About Advanced Research Systems (ARS):

ARS was started in 1986 to provide cryogenic solutions for low temperature research. We are a leader in cryogenic closed- and open-cycle solutions from 1.5 – 800 K; up to 1.6W cooling power; ultralow vibrations < 2 nm; and high fields magnetic fields (up to 9T). Our cryogenic solutions are used for cutting-edge applications and experiments ranging from quantum science, to optical spectroscopy, to neutron scattering. ARS specializes in Helium-Free Cryostats, Flow Cryostats, and Probe Stations; all of which are manufactured in our headquarters in Macungie, Pennsylvania.
