  journal={Journal of Low Temperature Physics},
We have successfully developed and tested a compact shielded superconducting (SSC) magnet with a FeCoV magnetic shield. This was developed for the PrNi$_5$ based nuclear demagnetization refrigerator which can keep temperatures below 1 mK continuously (CNDR) [Toda $\it{et~al}$., J. Phys.: Conf. Ser. $\bf{969}$, 012093 (2018)]. The clear bore diameter, outer diameter, and total length of the SSC magnet are 22, 42 and 169 mm, respectively, and it produces the maximum field of 1.38 T at an electric… 

Superconducting zinc heat switch for continuous nuclear demagnetization refrigerator and sub-mK experiments

We have developed and tested a zinc superconducting heat switch suitable for magnetic refrigeration and calorimetric experiments at sub-millikevin (sub-mK) temperatures. The specific application here

Construction of Continuous Magnetic Cooling Apparatus with Zinc-Soldered PrNi $$_5$$ 5 Nuclear Stages

We report design and test results of a new thermal contact method for a PrNi $$_5$$ 5 rod, a nuclear coolant for a compact and continuous nuclear demagnetization refrigerator (CNDR) which can keep



High-field magnet for low-temperature low-field cryostats

A small superconducting magnet with a large highly confined field has been designed for ultralow‐temperature cryostats. The magnet provides a central field of 3 T, with a homogeneity of 0.1% over 7.3

Matter and Methods at Low Temperatures

This textbook contains a wealth of information essential for successful experiments at low temperatures. The first chapters describe the low-temperature properties of liquid and solid matter,

Hysteretic losses in Nb‐Ti superconductors

When subjected to transient magnetic fields, superconductors exhibit losses. At low frequencies, most of the dissipation is hysteretic. Magnetization was measured in an axial field for eight

Design and expected performance of a compact and continuous nuclear demagnetization refrigerator for sub-mK applications

Sub-mK temperatures are achievable by a copper nuclear demagnetization refrigerator (NDR). Recently, research demands for such an ultra-low temperature environment are increasing not only in

Design, manufacture, and test of an adiabatic demagnetization Refrigerator Magnet for use in space

The design, manufacture and test of the superconducting magnet for the flight standard prototype is described, subject to tight constraints on its mass, stray field, and power consumption.
