Aligning the sample mount for the first time.
sample mount aligning and photography. Great!
An upgrade to the cryostat: a new braid to better decouple sample and cold finger
The first real experiment is running. Base temperature 7.5 K reached.
A sample after we evaporated gold.
All wires connected and tested.
Assembly of the cold finger and sample mount.
Inner cryostat of the bolometer used for far-infrared measurements.
