    This paper describes a simple portable mechanical structure to support a medium size cryostat. The structure can provide adequate support for an helium-3 cryostat with an 8 T magnet while the Dewar can be stored between experiment in a pit hole area below the temporary structure.

  • A low-loss, ultrahigh vacuum compatible helium cryostat without liquid nitrogen shield. Okamoto, Hiroshi; Chen, Dongmin // Review of Scientific Instruments;Feb2001, Vol. 72 Issue 2, p1510 

    An ultrahigh vacuum compatible compact helium cryostat with a 48 h hold time for a 2.5 l of liquid helium capacity has been realized. The design exploits the large enthalpy of the gas phase helium, by using two layers of vapor-cooled radiation shield in place of the conventional liquid nitrogen...
