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