Experimental Techniques for Low-Temperature Measurements

Cryostat Design, Material Properties and Superconductor Critical-Current Testing

Jack Ekin

  • Broad readership across applied science.
  • Extensively illustrated. Many charts and data tables included.
  • A highly integrated text that builds a consistent, self-supporting knowledge base of low-temperature apparatus design, one idea at a time.
  • Tutorial aspects include detailed discussions of low-temperature measurement techniques, construction techniques for measurement cryostats, operating procedures, vacuum technology, and safety.
  • Covers many recent developments in low-temperature measurement techniques, superconductors, and scaling theory not previously published.
