Following up on his discussion in the Fall 2013 issue of Cold Facts on when an Adiabatic Demagnetization Refrigerator (ADR) cryostat is the right tool for the job, Charlie Danaher provides useful technical tips on how to effectively use an ADR.
In the Summer 2006 issue of Cold Facts, we debuted a feature story about outstanding young professionals who are active in the cryogenics industry. This year, we again asked the cryogenics community for the names of up-and-coming "young faces." Here is Part I of the third installment of Young Faces, with responses listed in order of receipt.
Over the years, Cold Facts has been privileged to have published informed, thoughtful and innovative columns by a series of leaders in the cryogenics industry. Here’s a look back at some of the highlights of the past and a review of our present contributors.
The first BICEP (Background Imaging of Cosmic Extragalactic Polarization), BICEP1, observed with 49 spider-web bolometers for three years. BICEP2 carried 256 dual polarization transition-edge superconducting detectors of greatly increased sensitivity, and also observed for three years. Dr. Peter Mason reports here on the results of these two instruments and their significance.
Dr. Philippe Lebrun and Dr. Laurent Tavian of CERN report on an upcoming study of Future Circular Colliders kicked off in February at the University of Geneva.
Rozalia Papp, Air Liquide, discusses the history, development, available research, uses and possible applications of Deep Cryogenic Treatment and looks at future prospects from its use.
