  • Publication number: 20200054961
    Abstract: Systems and methods for improving the performance of dilution refrigeration systems are described. Filters and traps employed in the helium circuit of a dilution refrigerator may be modified to improve performance. Some traps may be designed to harness cryocondensation as opposed to cryoadsorption. A cryocondensation trap employs a cryocondensation surface having a high thermal conductivity and a high specific heat with a binding energy that preferably matches at least one contaminant but does not match helium. Multiple traps may be coupled in series in the helium circuit, with each trap designed to trap a specific contaminant or set of contaminants. Both cryocondensation and cryoadsorption may be exploited among multiple traps.

  • Publication number: 20200048136
    Abstract: Preparation of halogen-doped silica is described. The preparation includes doping silica with high halogen concentration and sintering halogen-doped silica to a closed-pore state in a gas-phase environment that has a low partial pressure of impermeable gases. Impermeable gases are difficult to remove from halogen-doped fiber preforms and lead to defects in optical fibers drawn from the preforms. A low partial pressure of impermeable gases in the sintering environment leads to a low concentration of impermeable gases and a low density of gas-phase voids in densified halogen-doped silica. Preforms with fewer defects result.
