Fridge update

Meanwhile in Leiden the Gas Handling System of our first fridge has been assembled. The red frame also doubles as a ‘dump’ for helium-3, the precious quantum liquid that makes cooling below one degree Kelvin possible.

The fridge has been moved from the first floor of the factory to the ground floor, where fridges are ultimately tested. The importance of this event cannot be understated.
