Making measurements on materials at low temperatures is an area of research that is full of challenges which often cause days or weeks of lost time.
Practical educational materials on the subject are thin, and graduate students and professors often find themselves in the position of not having enough hands-on cryogenic training and no-one available to adequately pass on the knowledge to them year after year. Montana Instruments is a team of scientists and engineers who are passionate about making cold science simple, and one way they are accomplishing this mission is by offering free practical educational materials and seminars to help fill this knowledge gap in the research industry.
The upcoming seminar will be taught by Luke Mauritsen, Founder and President of Montana Instruments. This seminar will cover various aspects of low temperature measurements such as proper sample mounting, maximizing thermal conductance and minimizing heat loads to the sample, vibration control, when to use various types of optimal wiring, cryocooler technologies, low temperature applications and more. The seminar is designed so that the novice and the expert will learn something valuable they can take back to the lab and be more effective!
