Aims
This course gives an overview of the science and technology at low temperature and applications.
Content
Learning objectives
1. Is aware of the historical developments in producing cold and cryogenics.
2. Recognize and understand the material and fluid properties at low temperatures. Is able to plot the phase diagrams of typical cryogenic substances.
3. Is able to apply design principles in the construction of a cryostat and other cryogenic equipment. Is aware of the safety standards related to handling cryogenic equipment.
4. Recognize the working principles of cryogenic coolers and liquefiers. Is able to apply fundamental thermodynamic laws to analyze the system performance.  Interpret thermodynamic property diagrams.
5. Analyse and model heat transfer at low temperature.
6. Describe and explain cryogenic instrumentation methods and principles.
7. Synthesize and propose applications of cryogenics
