Virtually every project and Fermilab requires cryogenic refrigeration of some kind and the APS-TD Cryogenic Sector is responsible for designing, installing and operating these systems.

For example, we are responsible for designing and operating the various cryogenic test facilities used to qualify superconducting accelerator components for projects including LHC’s HILUMI, SLAC’s LCLS-II, and Fermilab’s PIP-II and Mu2e. We are responsible to deliver the large scale superfluid helium cryogenic system for the future Superconducting Radio Frequency (SRF) Linac, PIP-II.

In addition, the Cryogenic Sector also supports various mK cryogenic systems, utilizing cutting edge dilution refrigerators for Dark Matter Quantum Sensor experiments and Quantum Computing R&D.
