Abstract

The study of powder* in vacuum for very low temperature insulation was started to:
  1. 1)

    Evaluate the quality of this type of insulation by making conductivity measurements.

     
  2. 2)

    Investigate and compare the insulating properties of different commercial powders and modifications thereof.
