Helium, chemical element, inert gas of Group 18 (noble gases) of the periodic table. The second lightest element, helium is a colorless, odorless, and tasteless gas that becomes liquid at degrees Celsius. The boiling and freezing points of helium are lower than those of any other known substance.
Superfluidity, the frictionless flow and other exotic behaviour observed in liquid helium at temperatures near absolute zero (− °C, or − °F), and (less widely used) similar frictionless behaviour of electrons in a superconducting solid. In each case the unusual behaviour arises from
Introduction. When liquid helium is used during an experiment it boils off, and, if no recycling system is used, the resulting helium gas is vented to the atmosphere where it cannot be reclaimed. Consequently, without a system that allows for helium recycling, liquid helium must be purchased on a regular schedule from a supplier and can be a ...
Operating Instructions for CMSH Series Multishielded Liquid Helium Containers. Access Port Assemblies | Calibration Charts and Drawings. Introduction. The Cryofab CMSH Series liquid helium dewars are designed for minimum loss storage, transportation and dispensing of liquid helium.
This introduction to cryogenic refrigeration is written in the frame of the CERN Accelerator School (CAS) Course on Superconductivity and Cryogenics. It consequently concerns refrigeration for cooling of superconductive devices with emphasis of liquid helium refrigeration. Following a general reminder of the thermodynamics involved,
Chemical poisoning Helium: Introduction. Chemical poisoning Helium: Helium is a chemical used mainly in helium balloons, neon signs and diving gas. The gas is sometimes misused as an inhalant. Ingestion and other exposures to the chemical can cause various symptoms.
helium can be used as a cryogenic coolant beyond the critical point, in the supercritical state. It is also interesting to note that, while liquid nitrogen resembles water as concerns density and viscosity, liquid helium is much lighter and less viscous. This latter property makes it a medium of choice for

How to Fill with Liquid Helium These instructions are an introduction (or a reminder) of how to transfer liquid helium from a dewar to an instrument such as a magnet or a cryostat. In many cases you will want to precool with liquid nitrogen, which is much more efficient that helium for
Introduction. Kammerlingh Onnes discovered in 1908 that liquid helium never solidified under its own vapor pressure. The interaction between the helium atoms is very weak because helium is an inert gas. The liquid phase is very weakly bound, and the normal boiling point is very low (° K).

Current theory explains this using the twofluid model for helium II. In this model, liquid helium below the lambda point is viewed as containing a proportion of helium atoms in a ground state, which are superfluid and flow with exactly zero viscosity, and a proportion of helium atoms in an excited state, which behave more like an ordinary fluid.
Aug 28, 2013· Design and Fabrication Considerations for Stainless Steel Liquid Helium Jackets Surrounding SCRF Cavities. August 28, 2013. Introduction The Department of Energy requires its subcontractors ( the National Laboratories) to meet 10 CFR 851 Appendix A Part 4 for all new pressure vessels and pressure piping.
Understand the origin of second sound in superfluid liquid helium. Observe the "fountain effect" and cessation of boiling in superfluid helium visually. Measure the speed of second sound as a function of temperature. Measure the heat capacity of liquid helium as a function of temperature. Learn techniques of lowtemperature physics.

Sep 11, 2014· As a practical matter, a pumped bath of liquid helium 4 can be used to cool down to about 1 Kelvin. A pumped bath of liquid helium 3 can be used to cool down to about Kelvin. Superfluid Helium. For helium 4, crogenicists distinguish two liquid forms: helium I and helium II. Helium I is the warmer form; helium II is the colder.
Liquid helium is about 500 times more expensive than liquid air. Liquid helium boils at , has a density of about g/cc, and an index of refraction of , close to that of a vacuum. The latent heat of vaporization is only 5 cal/g, so it evaporates rapidly and must be carefully insulated to reduce loss.
