One of GTNaM’s vacuum chambers to perform thermal conduction measurements.
Autonomous University of Barcelona, UAB, and the Catalan Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology, ICN2
Both are located in Bellaterra, near the city of Barcelona, Spain. The Group of Thermal Properties of Nanoscale Materials, GTNaM, works on thermal properties, heat capacity and thermal transport measurements of disordered and nanoscale materials, with special focus on the ultrathin film limit and low-dimensional solids.
The image shows one of GTNaM’s vacuum chambers to perform thermal conduction measurements. Refrigerated with a liquid thermal bath, the sample holder temperature can be controlled with in 1mK in the range from 240 to 400K. The inset shows the fast electrical plug-in of chips through gold contact probes.
