HPGe Radiation Detector Cooling

Cryostats, Dewars, Cryostat/Dewar Assemblies, and Electrical Cooling
All HPGe radiation detectors require cooling to cryogenic temperatures for successful operation. This is typically accomplished using a liquid cryogen, most commonly liquid nitrogen (LN2), or with an electro-mechanical cooler.

ORTEC offers a full suite of cryogenic cooling solutions to meet the diversity of customer application requirements. These solutions range from static and recirculating LN2 operations, to various electro-mechanical cryocoolers.

Please select from the following table for more details about each solution.
