Mikroniek summer issue: Cooling & Cryogenics

In his editorial, Mikrocentrum High Tech Platform manager Maarten Roos looks back on the first Techcafé, a new DSPE-Mikrocentrum collaboration.

The summer issue of Mikroniek, click here for a first impression, is devoted to the theme of Cooling & Cryogenics.
Theme articles include cryogenic magnet technology for high-field MRI, and the design of an efficient micro-cooler with a low form factor and high mechanical and thermal stability, for life-sciences microscopy. Off-theme, the design of a ‘dancer’ for in-line interferometry for precision in roll-to-roll production is presented.Please send an e-mail for information on how to obtain a hardcopy.
