Here are some artsey pictures of the latest incarnation of the fridge and it’s related experiments. I love wires 🙂
I’ve been putting on some additional equipment to do differential conductance measurements, to look at the effect of materials with interesting densities of states on the IV curves. The wiring won’t stay so messy for long, I just thought I’d get some pictures whilst it all looks a bit Alien.
This is a different fridge, it’s an Adiabatic Demagnetisation Refrigerator. I have been recently setting up an experiment on this one, although I might move it back to my original fridge to save liquid Helium (this thing eats 175L in one go!)
