IMAGINE finalizes cryogenic sample environment
Instrument scientist Flora Meilleur (right) and scientific associate Lakeisha Walker (left) prepare to load a sample onto the CCR cold finger. Temperature is controlled by a LakeShore model 340 cryogenic temperature controller (not shown; LakeShore Cryotronics, Inc.). The inner heat shield (not shown) and outer vacuum can are made of amorphous aluminum to minimize background.
