Abstract

A modular design for a miniature thermal conductivity cell suitable for a dilution refrigerator and other sample-in-vacuum cryogenic environments with different magnet options is described. The sample is mounted once and the contacts remain in place when the unit is repositioned or transported between different magnets and cryostats. This mobility enables comprehensive measurements with access to specific options, such as vector magnet in one lab and ultra-high field in another. This design enables significant expansion of the temperature range by using not only dilution refrigerators but also He-3, He-4 cryostats and even ubiquitous Quantum Design Physical Property Measurement System.
