About Us

kiutra builds easy-access turn-key refrigeration solutions. Our all-electrical cooling devices combine magnetic refrigeration and closed-cycle pre-cooling to provide cryogenic temperatures cryogen-free and conveniently.

Cryogenic temperatures are a key prerequisite for research and development, and many industrial applications. The Physics Department at the Technical University of Munich has a long tradition in developing novel methods and devices providing these low temperatures. kiutra is a TUM spin-off launched at the Chair for the Topology of Correlated Systems. Our team brings in more than 50 years of experience in applied low-temperature physics and cryo-engineering.

kiutra is currently funded by “EXIST Transfer of Research”, a program of the German Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy which supports excellent, research-based Startups.

Cryogen-free. Automatic. Compact.

Multi-Purpose Research Cryostats

kiutra’s standard cryostats combine closed-cycle pre-cooling and multi-stage magnetic refrigeration to provide sub-Kelvin temperatures cryogen-free and continuously.

Features: cryogen-free | continuous cooling | compact size | large temperature range | excellent temperature stability | fully automatic operation | robotic sample changes | large sample space | open-source software

The basic system makes use of a closed-cycle refrigerator (1 – 2 W, 3.5 – 300 K). Currently, it may be upgraded according to customer requirements with up to three ADR units:

MR-1(L)
MR-2
MR-3
