Apparatus for trapping and thermal detection of atomic hydrogen in high magnetic fields at low temperatures

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

An apparatus is described in which hydrogen atoms were trapped at temperatures down to 1.1 K in the 11 T field of a large volume superconducting magnet. A high sensitivity thermal detector was used to study trapping and recombination of atoms on the detector surface. The apparatus permits the application of extremely high steady state magnetic fields to study the potential effects of electron spin polarization on the stabilization of hydrogen atoms.
