Written in an accessible and readable style, the book provides a truly integrated, step-by-step approach to the design and construction of low-temperature measurement apparatus. It presents a practical perspective of heat transfer, materials selection, construction techniques, wiring, thermometry, sample mounting, and electrical contacts, and recent developments in superconductor data analysis and scaling theory. The graphs, clear examples, and seventy appendix data tables are a
treasure trove of practical information. - ;This book presents a highly integrated, step-by-step approach to the design and construction of low-temperature measurement apparatus. It is effectively two books in one: A textbook on cryostat design techniques and an appendix data handbook that provides materials-property data for carrying out that design. The main text encompasses a wide range of information, written for specialists, without leaving beginning students behind. After summarizing cooling methods, Part I provides
core information in an accessible style on techniques for cryostat design and fabrication - including heat-transfer design, selection of materials, construction, wiring, and thermometry, accompanied by many graphs, data, and clear examples. Part II gives a practical user's perspective of sample
mounting techniques and contact technology. Part III applies the information from Parts I and II to the measurement and analysis of superconductor critical currents, including in-depth measurement techniques and the latest developments in data analysis and scaling theory. The appendix is a ready reference handbook for cryostat design, encompassing seventy tables compiled from the contributions of experts and over fifty years of literature. - ;Overall, I highly recommend Ekin's book. It is informative and well written, for beginners who are starting research at low temperatures and for veterans who will benefit from the author's experience. George O. Zimmerman, Physics Today, May 2007, page 67 - ;This extensively illustrated book presents a step-by-step approach to the design and constuction of low-temperature measurement apparatus. Many recent developments in the field not previously published are covered in this volume. - CERN Courier;I could not wait for this book to appear in print. I will make it required reading for anyone designing cryogenic probes for use in our laboratory. - Bruce Brandt, U.S.National High Magnetic Field Laboratory, Tallahassee, Florida;I am very impressed with the mixture of rigour and practicality that the book offers.[...] The charts are a treasure trove of practical information. - Mark Colclough, University of Birmingham;Beginners as well as [specialists] should have such a text, including the copious data on cryogenics ... - Hisayasu Kobayashi, University of Tokyo;I really liked the example calculations [...] If you don't find the information in the text, one can be sure that it's in the Appendix. This makes the text a 'stand-alone' book on cryostat design. - Karsten Guth, Universit--auml--;t G--ouml--;ttingen
