Abstract

The purpose of this project was to optimize an AC cryogenic calorimeter by replacing the wiring with a new organized wiring setup. A breakout box has been built which shields and protects the wiring as well as gives the calorimeter a more user friendly appeal. Experimentation was done to check the accuracy of the calorimeter and to collect data for a superconducting sample. The results showcase low-noise data and an analysis of the temperature and frequency scans.
