A double jacket cryostat based on thermal convection between a gaseous cold stream filled in a freezing chamber and the sample cell is described. This device is designed for absorption spectroscopy in the infrared and in the UV-visible regions for gases, liquids, liquefied gases, and solids, as well as for the transitions between these phases or between phases in the solid state, over the range 85 to 340 K, at variable thicknesses and under a pressure of up to 10 bars.
