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.

Editorial Reviews

Written as a lab handbook, this text can stand alone as a practical guide for those without detailed physics education, although there are also sections on the history and fundamentals of cooling processes, temperature measurement, and heat transfer for postgraduates and undergraduates in physics. The third edition was published in 1979. This fourth edition is revised to reflect the use of ready-built commercial equipment and the increase in the number of people in a variety of disciplines now engaged in low-temperature experiments. White is an honorary fellow of the CSIRO National Measurement Laboratory, Australia. Meeson is a Royal Society University Research Fellow in the physics laboratory at the University of Bristol.
