Applications for Cryogenic Cooling


On the 12th October STFC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (RAL) will be opening its doors to the SIRACH Network. RAL is home to many of the UK’s most advanced research facilities and supports work in a range of areas including space science and astronomy, particle physics, nanotechnology and developing new materials. Our SIRACH event will focus on applications for cryogenic cooling and delegates will hear presentations on leading edge technologies.
