Title Operation of superconducting magnet with dilution refrigerator insert in zero boil-off regime
Abstract The combination of high magnetic field and ultra-low temperatures has proved to be indispensable for a broad range of condensed matter physics experiments. However problems with the global helium supply have raised significant concern about affordability of conventional cryogenic equipment. The latest developments in cryo-cooler technology offer a new generation of cryogenic systems in which the cryogen consumption can be significantly reduced and in some cases completely eliminated. We have demonstrated a new high magnetic field - ultra-low temperature neutron scattering sample environment system based on re-condensing technology. In our tests we have shown that the 9 T superconducting magnet, built for the ISIS facility, can be run with a dilution refrigerator insert in continuous zero boiloff regime without any additional cooling.
