Matter and methods at low temperatures.

Author(s) : POBELL F.

Type of monograph: Other


The aim of this book is to provide information about performing experiments at low temperatures, as well as basic facts concerning the low temperature properties of liquid and solid matter. It is devoted to refrigeration techniques and to the physics on which they are based, on the definition and measurement of temperature, and on low temperature thermometry. Extract from the table of contents: properties of cryoliquids; solid matter at low temperatures; thermal contact and thermal isolation; helium 4 cryostats; helium 3 cryostats; the 3He-4He dilution refrigerator; refrigeration by solidification of liquid 3He: Pomeranchuck cooling; refrigeration by adiabatic demagnetization of a paramagnetic salt; refrigeration by adiabatic nuclear demagnetization; temperature scales and temperature fixed points; low-temperature thermometry; miscellaneous cryogenic design aids.
