Reasons to Study Materials at Low Temperatures
Check out our  Reasons-to-Study-Materials-at-Low-Temperatures.pdf  for nine reasons why research at cryogenic temperatures can yield valuable insights into material properties. ...
The Challenges of Low Temperature Research
INTRODUCTION The study of material science at cryogenic temperatures is full of challenges. The nature of work at near absolute zero requires a thorough understanding of the interactions of the room temperature environment on the experimental s...
Understanding the Gifford-McMahon Cryocooler Cycle: Single Stage
The main cooling appartus in the Montana Instruments Cryostation system is called a Gifford-McMahon (GM) refrigerator. The figures below provide a simplified description of this mechanism. Figure 1 is a temperature vs entropy diagram of th...
