This practical book provides recipes for the construction of devices used in low temperature experimentation. It emphasizes what works, rather than what might be the optimum method, and lists current sources for purchasing components and equipment.
Table of Contents
Cooling and cryogenic equipment (Dewars and magnets, cryostats for storage Dewars, dilution refrigerators, pumps and plumbing, magnetic cooling); cryogenic design aids (recipes, special materials, vibration isolation, electric and magnetic isolation, cooling the sample); experimental techniques and special devices (bridges, torsional oscillators, cryogenic electronics, nuclear magnetic resonance, ultrasound, high-frequency methods, pressure measurements, electromagnetic compatibility); thermometry (primary thermometry, magnetic thermometry, other secondary thermometers).
