For scanning tunneling spectroscopy (STS) on low dimensional electron systems, an ultra high vacuum (UHV) scanning tunneling microscope (STM) operating at T=300 mK and in magnetic fields up to B=14 T has been built up.
The STM sitting in a bakeable UHV-insert within the 3He-cryostat can be operated continuously for about 30 hours witout any refill of the cryogenic liquid. It achieves a z-noise level below 5 pm. Using superconducting tips and samples first experimental STS results show that the energy resolution reached is close to the predicted theoretical limit of 75 µ V. For exchanging tips and samples the insert with STM can be moved to a UHV chamber. Further connected UHV chambers contain different equipment for tip and sample preparation and characterisation, i.e. a RT-STM , a LEED/Auger system, several evaporators and a variable temperature system to detect the magnetooptical Kerr-effect (MOKE).
