Real online dilfridge :)

By the way, I just found out there's a real dilfridge (dilution refrigerator) live on twitter... :) Would be interesting to know which research group that is. With the hard-soldered caps on the top IVC plate and the ribbon cables this is for sure an Oxford Instruments model, but whatever else is visible in the lab looks like pretty standard equipment...


  1. A few other companies also sell the cryogenic woven loom you describe - CMR-Direct seems to currently have the widest range, with 12-pair and 2-pair and the mixed constantan/copper.

  2. For those unfamiliar with dilution refrigerators there's an lovely animation here:-

    (you need to keep pressing the play button as it pauses after each step).

    Good diluting !
