Very low temperature / Cryogenic temperature

Low temperature technology (also cryogenic technology or cryogenics) deals with the generation of very low temperatures below -150 °C. Low temperature technology simulates applications in space in order to evaluate the effects of temperature on materials. For this purpose, capacitive displacement sensors are used which offer high Temperature stability . These sensors perform distance measurements with nanometer Resolution . Magnetic fields or vacuum environments have no impact on capacitive sensors which enables extremely high signal stability and resolutions to be achieved.
