The University of Southampton
Rifi An Enterprise Consultancy Unit


The University of Southampton has been conducting science and engineering at low temperatures (Cryogenics) for over 40 years. The consultancy team can help your industry to  further develop your existing capabilities or to develop new technologies.


RIfI's cryogenic experts understand and can anaylse and perform practical measurements to determine both the thermal and mechanical properties of materials and components in the temperature range of 4 K to 350 K.

RIfI and the Institute of Cryogenic (IOC), a research group which apply cryogenics to study cutting edge technologies such as superconductors, share a bespoke Cryogenics Laboratory at the University of Southampton. The teams have developed their own equipment modified to operate with liquid or gaseous cryogenic fluids such as nitrogen and helium.
