For more than 30 years the Institute of Cryogenics has been actively engaged in fundamental and applied research in cryogenic engineering and superconductivity. The institute contains experts in cryogenic systems, thermodynamics and cryogenic coolers, cryogenic safety, handling of cryogen and enhanced heat transfer, and superconducting materials and applications. The synergy of such a wide range of expertise gives the Institute a unique strength in extending the frontier of cryogenic technology and developing multiple disciplinary research projects.
The Cryogenic Advisory Unit offers consultancy services for customer cryogenic systems and cryogenic testing. Its services are available through the Research Institute for Industry (RIfI)
