This post describes upgrade efforts from 10 - 16 November, with the following goals:
- introducing a solid copper bar thermal linkage
- shifting the setup away from PD testing
- preparing for the next test (radiative cooling of Si)
Here are some highlights of the effort:
The rest of the installation effort is captured in the next log post QIL/2695, to partition the items relevant to the radiative cooling of the silicon mass.
The photos here (and others) are posted to the QIL Cryo Vacuum Chamber photo album.
