Piezospectroscopic measurement of high-frequency vibrations in a pulse-tube cryostat

Louchet-Chauvet, A; Ahlefeldt, Rose; Chaneliere, Thierry


Vibrations in cryocoolers are a recurrent concern to the end user. They appear in different parts of the acoustic spectrum depending on the refrigerator type, Gifford McMahon or pulse-tube, and with a variable coupling strength to the physical system under interest. Here, we use the piezospectroscopic effect in rare-earth doped crystals at a low temperature as a high resolution, contact-less probe for the vibrations. With this optical spectroscopic technique, we obtain and analyze the vibration...[Show more]
