This webinar will cover helpful, practical tips on how to choose the right type of sensor and packaging for the specific application and then summarize best practice for minimizing installation errors and ensuring superior thermalization in a cryogenic thermometry installation.

Topics include:

  • Considerations for choosing a sensor (including resistance to magnetic fields, ionizing radiation, UHV and others).
  • The role of packaging and adapters for shielding, mounting, stability and optimal thermal contact.
  • Considerations for sensor installation (placement, mounting method, materials, electrical connections, heat sinking, thermal contact medium, etc).
  • A look at the choices for fastening  materials, wire leads, thermal mediums and adhesives.

The webinar presented by Scott Courts will help the audience to:

  • Understand the advantages/disadvantages of various temperature sensor types in different situations.
  • Gain a detailed understanding of how correct installation minimizes measurement error.
  • Learn about avoiding common installation errors that can disrupt your experiments.

Scott CourtsScott Courts has been active in the field of cryogenics for more than 30 years. He received his BSc in physics from Marshall University and his PhD in experimental solid state physics from The Ohio State University. In 1989, he joined Lake Shore as a senior scientist in the company’s Sensor R&D Division, focusing on developing thin-film thermometer materials exhibiting high ionizing radiation tolerance and low magnetoresistance offsets for use in accelerator applications.

This work led to the development of Lake Shore Cernox® sensors. He has also served as technical director for Lake  Shore’s thermometer calibration facility, and he currently serves as a senior scientist/metrologist, maintaining Lake Shore’s traceable thermometry scales.

A member of the American Physical Society and the Cryogenic Society of America, Scott has published more than 35 articles on cryogenics/thermometry and served as a reviewer for various journals and proceedings. He has also taught short courses on cryogenic thermometry and instrumentation in both public and private settings for the past 20+ years.
