Low-noise Magnetic Field Cryostat for SQUID-Applications

ILK Dresden developed low noise magnetic field and non metallic helium cryostats made of GRP (glass reinforced plastics) with a high helium and vacuum holding time.

The cryostats can operate in a direction independent operation mode (tiltable arrangement) and hence they are suitable for a plurality of several applications.

The ILK concept offers much lower permeation rates inside the He-reservoir as comparable models from other manufacturers and is therefore perfect for SQUID (superconducting quantum interference device) applications and other long-term measurements.
 
The technical design of the cryostats is thus predestined for future sensor generation.

Specification

  • suitable for the cooling of SQUID-Sensors
  • non-metallic (GRP)
  • fast filling with LHe via thermosiphon
  • GRP exhaust gas cooled radiation shield for high efficiency.
  • small cold-warm distance feasible
  • low maintenance 
  • other design variants possible on costumer request

Technical Data for the Cryostats

parametervalue
volume of liquid helium5 to 12 litre (other volume possible)
time to complete evaporation of helium3 to 7 days (depends on size)
heat load0.1 W (in standby operation)
rate of helium evaporation≤ 3 litre / day
holding time of the liquid heliumup to 4 days without refilling
initial noise of the cryostat< 3 fT / Hz½
helium leak test (He-vessel)< 1 × 10-11 mbar l / s

Low noise magnetic field

The low-noise magnetic field of the cryostat was tested in the magnetically shielded room BMSR-1 of PTB Berlin and is smaller than the lowest resolution limit of the measurement system used, see figure below.
