Paper Abstract

A low-temperature cryostat to be used in high fluence neutron work, which uses titanium as the primary construction material, is described. Results of the material studies used to make the choice are presented and machining and joining techniques used in the fabrication are described. A heatsink design that provides rapid cooldown is described; it can be used in device studies in the temperature range up to 40° Kelvin using liquid helium as the refrigerant.
