Efficient tensile cryostats for some years have been used at temperatures as low as boiling liquid helium [1]. It seems appropriate, however to extend the low-temperature capabilities, since millidegree equipment design, potential space applications, and fundamental deformation studies all may profit from tensile data obtained at temperatures nearer absolute zero.
