The optical spectroscopy 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.
The youngest group member comes visiting dad's new lab.
The black frame will hold the optical table. Vibration isolation is achieved using MinusK negative spring constant isolators.
An inside look into the workhorse of the group.The sample mount is in aligned position on the left.

The first real experiment is running. Base temperature 7.5 K reached.
Aligning the sample mount for the first time.
All wires connected and tested.
Cryostat and Bruker spectrometer are aligned. Ready for measuring.
