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.
