Paper Abstract

Lens mounts for cryogenic service have many requirements: mitigation of thermal shock on the lens, maintenance of lens centering and spacing, control of mechanical stress on the lens from the cell, reliable connection of the lens to the cell, and applicability to a wide variety of lens materials. This paper describes in detail a lens mounting system successfully used in several cryogenic instruments.
