All papers have been peer-reviewed. The Cryogenic Engineering Conference covers applications and systems at temperatures where ordinary gases are liquids or solids, generally less than 150 K (-120°C or 185°F). It covers the newest approaches to producing low temperatures and to the use of systems at low temperatures, such as new superconducting magnets, high temperature superconducting electrical power applications, space applications and the properties of fluids and materials at these temperatures. Design, construction, testing, and characterization of cryogenic systems are presented.
