Abstract:

This is the final report on a contract which has provided helium gas for the Liquid Helium Facility at the University of Virginia. The largest use is centered on solid state and low temperature physics research connected with electronic properties of materials, superconductivity, magnetism, electronic devices and liquid helium. In addition a number of instruments operating at liquid helium temperatures are used for a broader range of research in many departments and at the National Radio Astronomy Laboratory. Seventeen faculty members presently use liquid helium as a major part of their research programs and others utilize instruments and cryostats on an available basis for some aspects of their research.
