Nanostructures measurement

We have a wide range of low-temperature systems for electrical, magnetic and optical measurements of nanostructures. These systems are supplied with liquid helium by Low Temperature Services.

Low Temperature Services

Consisting of a network of recovery pipes, collection bag, compressors, high pressure storage cylinders and a helium purifier liquefier to re-liquefy the boil off helium.

Contact:  Adam Woodgate, Special Services Technician

Liquid gas storage

On site bulk storage for 3000L liquid nitrogen and 2000L liquid helium in liquid form.

Linde TCF20 Helium Purifier Liquefier

Capable of producing up to 50,000 litres of liquid helium per year.
