The Cryogenics group specialises in the development of milli-Kelvin cryo-coolers (based on the adiabatic demagnetisation refrigeration -ADR method) for use in space based and in ground based applications.

We perform fundamental cryogenic research and also dedicated cryogenic projects (e.g The EPSRC funded milli-kelvin cryo-cooler).

A presentation given at the 4th European Space cryogenics workshop on our Space cooler programme can be viewed here (pdf 1.4Mb).
