The Lancaster ULT group is a leading partner in the FP7 MICROKELVIN collaboration.

The principal objective of MICROKELVIN is the opening up of the milli- and microkelvin temperature regime to nanoscience, condensed matter physics, particle physics, cosmology and instrumentation. The project will bring together three leading European ultra-low temperature laboratories at TKK, Helsinki, CNRS, Grenoble and Lancaster University to create "a unified laboratory without walls" offering microkelvin facilities to external users. Associated with the three core institutions are eight European laboratories and one cryogenic business.

If you are interested in using these facilities and associated infrastructure, then please contact Prof. George Pickett at the earliest opportinity to discuss your needs and timescale.
