Overview

Intended as a beginner's guide for physicists involved in postgraduate studies in low-temperature physics (i.e. cryogenics), this work has maintained the lab handbook style of earlier editions, while revising the contents. White (CSIRO National Measurement Laboratory, Australia) and Meeson (H. H. Wills Physics Laboratory, U. of Bristol, UK) offer 11 chapters covering the historical and scientific perspectives, production of temperatures to one K, thermometry, heat transfer, storage and handling of liquefied gases, temperature control, cryostats for 1-300 K, magnets, other techniques, and physical properties of solids.
