"The Art of Cryogenics, 2nd Edition" covers a large spectrum of experimental cases, including basic vacuum techniques, indispensable in cryogenics. The extensive coverage is justified by the variety of methods and techniques that are required to master low temperature experiments. Guidance in solving experimental problems and numerous numerical examples is given, as are examples of the applications of cryogenics in such areas as underground detectors and space applications. Updated tables of low-temperature data on materials are also presented, and the book is supplemented with a rich bibliography. Ventura is a leading expert in cryogenics and this new edition fills the gap between theory and practice of low temperature experimental physics. Researchers (graduate and above) in the fields of engineering, physics and chemistry with an interest in the technology and applications of low-temperature measurements, will find this book invaluable. Contains detailed descriptions of the experimental design of many different low temperature experimentsNew edition extends the collection of low temperature data and references that are essential for experimental workContains updated information on wiring applications and introduces the main databases used for thermophysical propertiesCovers cutting edge subjects such as nuclear demagnetization and on the future redefinition of the Kelvin through the Boltzmann constant."
