2019 got off to a fantastic start here at the LHQS. Santa Claus brought us a new LD400 dilution refrigerator from Bluefors … as everyone knows Santa Claus really is from Finland. But seriously, this new low temperature cryostat is going to dramatically speed up our experimental efforts on all fronts! The fridge is being customized for exciting new experiments with electrons on helium and superconducting transmon qubits. Also, a special anti-vibration tripod is currently being fabricated in the MSU Physics and Astronomy Machine Shop and we’re busy getting the fridge setup in the lab. Lots of jobs to do, but it’s also a lot of fun! Below are some more photos of new system after we got all the parts unpacked and moved down to the lab.
