Parallel session C3
6th October 2022/ 11:00-13:30
Albéniz room (floor -2)
Many Big Science organisations need a range of cryogenic installations and systems in order to operate superconducting magnets, detectors or other equipment requiring cryogenic (extremely low) temperatures. The technical areas of interest include: cryogenic equipment, cryogenic storage and handling, vibration reduction, remote cooling, long lifetime to reduce maintenance, cryogenic materials, structural materials at cryogenic temperatures, etc. In this session, synergies between ground and space cryogenics will also be addressed.
Vacuum chambers and components are pervasive in Big Science organisations with particle accelerators, detectors, instrument beamlines, coating systems and more. Throughout the phases of design, construction, operation, maintenance and upgrade of high & ultra-high vacuum systems, expertise is required for: manufacturing of HV and UHV components, vacuum sealing and leak-tightness technology, vacuum control systems, interlocks & monitoring tools; coatings, surface cleaning techniques, baking and outgassing procedures, and pumping systems.
