About The European Microkelvin Consortium
European Microkelvin Collaboration - MICROKELVIN - is an EU-funded Integrating Activity project carried out in the FP7
Capacities Specific Programme "Research Infrastructures". It is a bottom-up approach of 12 partners to provide
access to and develop applications of ultra-low temperature regime.
Research at the frontier near absolute zero has long been a powerhouse of ideas in physics and beyond. The principal
objective of MICROKELVIN is the opening up of the milli- and microkelvin temperature regime to nanoscience, condensed matter physics, particle physics, cosmology and instrumentation.
will bring together three leading European ultra-low temperature laboratories at TKK, Helsinki, CNRS, Grenoble and
Lancaster University to create "a unified laboratory without walls" offering microkelvin facilities to
external users. Associated with the three core institutions are eight European laboratories and one cryogenic business.
