Technology is Key
Solid-state cooling. Cryogen-free. Hassle-free.
With our easy-to-use and cryogen-free tools kiutra leverages the benefits of cryogen-free magnetic cooling. As the world’s first and only commercial supplier we build cryostats that implement classical “one-shot” adiabatic demagnetization refrigeration (ADR) as well as continuous ADR (cADR) for permanent solid-state cooling at sub-Kelvin temperatures.
One Technology, Many Possibilities.

A better sub-Kelvin experience
At kiutra, our mission is to provide our research and industry customers with easy-to-use, turnkey cryostats that give them the time to focus on their work rather than on their cryostats. We accelerate the development, testing and pre-characterization of quantum hardware and related electronics by means of fast-cooling tools and innovative sample exchange mechanisms. And our cooling platforms offer continuous sub-Kelvin cooling independent of liquid cooling media, notably independent of rare and costly helium-3. This is essential to provide cryogenic temperatures in a simple, compact, and cost-efficient way, and a prerequisite for a scalable application of quantum electronics.
A reliable partner for cryogen-free research
Our scientific background, our partnerships, and our active exchange with researchers from all around the world give us a good understanding for the difficulties and needs that arise in day-to-day laboratory work with cryogenic equipment. As an innovative university spin-off that is backed by trusted and expert deep tech investors, we are your reliable partner to support your cryogen-free R&D and commercial low-temperature applications.
