World leaders in sub-Kelvin cryogenics

Our customers’ applications include astrophysics, quantum technologies, nanotechnology, materials science and life sciences.

With an emphasis on custom design, we are constantly working to innovate and extend our product range, offering new, low cost opportunities to function at sub-Kelvin temperatures. Our custom builds include sorption coolers that extend the base temperatures, heat lifts and run times achievable with compact, sorption technology to new limits. Contact us to discuss whether we can meet your requirements.

Cool to below 1 Kelvin

Low-cost, easy to operate, reliable and effective. Our 1K sorption cooler modules interface to either a mechanical (GM/PT) cryocooler or the 4K plate of a ‘wet’ dewar. We can offer a number of interfacing options to accommodate a cold table housing the end-user application. Just contact us to discuss your requirements.
Popular applications for these sorption coolers include quantum computing, superconducting nanowire single-photon detectors (SNSPDs), superconducting electronics and semiconductor wafer testing. You won’t find a simpler way to reach temperatures below 1K.

Cool to below 0.3 Kelvin

Gram per gram, Helium 3 is the world’s most expensive substance. CRC’s gas-light sub-Kelvin sorption coolers have been designed to make the best possible use of this scarce resource. By buffering the ultra-cold stage with either one or two intermediate stages, we reduce the heat load on the ultra-cold head and hence lower the running temperature and lengthen the run time. As our coolers are sealed systems, no helium gas is consumed during operation and our units never need to be recharged or re-filled. Our latest design, the 300mK continuous cooler, even offers unlimited run time.

Cool to below 0.1 Kelvin

Cool to the max by using the latent heat of enthalpy produced as liquid Helium 3 dissolves in liquid Helium 4. Once again, our miniature dilution coolers are compact, sealed units that need no external gas supply and will never need to be refilled with expensive Helium 3. We are now offering miniature dilution coolers with continuous operation, using our 300mK continuous cooler to buffer the dilution module. If you are interested in the potential applications for this cooling technology, get in touch with us to discuss your needs and how we might help.
