The optical spectroscopy lab
All wires connected and tested.
Aligning the sample mount for the first time.
The first real experiment is running. Base temperature 7.5 K reached.
The cryostat inner parts after first time gold and aluminium evaporation.
Assembly of the cold finger and sample mount.
View of the front of the finished sample mount.
An upgrade to the cryostat: a new braid to better decouple sample and cold finger
Inner cryostat of the bolometer used for far-infrared measurements.
Great job by the technology center!
The controls for the FTIR setup.
The black frame will hold the optical table. Vibration isolation is achieved using MinusK negative spring constant isolators.
Cryostat and Bruker spectrometer are aligned. Ready for measuring.
