The first part of Dr. Peter Kittel's "Introduction to Pulse Tube Thermodynamics" was featured in the Fall 2012 issue of Cold Facts, which will be available for download soon.
Dr. Joel Ullom, 2012 CSA Roger W. Boom awardee, is the NIST Project Leader for superconducting calorimeter development and has worked in the fields of low temperature sensors, low temperature electronics and cryogenic systems since 1994.
Physicists describe how they have synthesized a new material that belongs to the iron-selenide class of superconductors, called LixFe2Se2(NH3)y, in a paper about to be published in EPJ B. The work was carried out by Ernst-Wilhelm Scheidt from the University of Augsburg and colleagues.
CSA recently announced the results of the 2012 Board of Technical Directors election. The results were certified at CSA's board meeting at the Applied Superconductivity Conference in Portland OR.
A California judge has tentatively ruled that a worker fired from NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory did not lose his job over his intelligent design beliefs.
Air Products has licensed its proprietary cryogenic machining technology to MAG IAS, LLC, a leading machine tool manufacturer.
Scientists have created the first controllable atomic circuit that functions analogously to a superconducting quantum interference device (SQUID) and allows operators to select a particular quantum state of the system at will. By manipulating atoms in a superfluid ring thinner than a human hair the investigators were able for the first time to measure rotation-induced discrete quantized changes in the atoms’ state, thereby providing a proof-of-principle design for an “atomtronic” inertial sensor.
Taylor-Wharton International, LLC, a world-leading technology, service and manufacturing network for gas applications involving pressure vessels and precision valves, has announced promotions and additions within its CryoScience Management Team.
Bars in the UK are being warned of the potential dangers of LN2 cocktails after an accident involving an 18-year-old in a Lancaster bar in early October.
The Cryogenic Institute of New England, Inc., a leading provider of Cryogenic Services such as cryogenic deflashing and deburring, cryogenic treatment, thermal cycling and dry ice blast cleaning, has received its registration from National Quality Assurance, U.S.A., after assessment of the company’s quality system and found it to be in compliance with ISO 9001:2008.
Air Liquide Brazil has recently signed two contracts with major regional firms: Coca-Cola bottler FEMSA and Suzano Papel e Celulose, investing nearly US$ 90 million (€70 million) to develop the two projects.
We regret to report that Martin D. Andonian of New Bedford MA, 83, died Friday, September 28, at St. Luke's Hospital in New Bedford.
A total of 120 attendees took part in the Cryogenic Cluster Day held at the end of September at the UK's Science and Technology Facilities Council Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, at the heart of the exceptionally strong cryogenic community in Oxfordshire.
Eleet Cryogenics, Bolivar OH, has expanded its manufacturing size and opened up new opportunities for the company’s development.
The next step has been taken in the search for the sixth director of Fermilab. On October 30 the Fermi Research Alliance LLC announced the names of the 16 members of the director search committee.
A new study analyzing the previous math standards of each state provides strong support for adoption of common standards, which US students desperately need to keep pace with their counterparts around the globe, a Michigan State University scholar argues.
