Default A sub-Kelvin cryogen-free EPR system

From The DNP-NMR Blog:

A sub-Kelvin cryogen-free EPR system

This article has nothing to do with DNP. However, the article nicely describes an impressive piece of isntrumentation to reach very low temperatures.

We present an EPR instrument built for operation at Q band below 1K. Our cryogen-free Dewar integrates with a commercial electro-magnet and bridge. A description of the cryogenic and RF systems is given, along with the adaptations to the standard EPR experiment for operation at sub-Kelvin temperatures. As a first experiment, the EPR spectra of powdered Cr12O9(OH)3(O2CCMe3)15 were measured. The sub-Kelvin EPR spectra agree well with predictions, and the performance of the sub-Kelvin system at 5K is compared to that of a commercial spectrometer.
