The Refrigeration and Thermo Hydraulics Laboratory (LRTH) is working on two research themes refrigeration of thermonuclear fusion machines and analysis of the behavior of helium at very high Reynolds number.
The Cryocoolers and Space Cryogenics Laboratory is dedicated to the development of cryocoolers and specific components. Particular emphasis is placed on the design of small-sized systems and / or dedicated to space applications.
The activity of the Cryogenics for Fusion Laboratory is directed towards the problems of technology involved in this field of scientific research. The scanning fields relate to fusion with magnetic containment and fusion by inertial confinement.
The Electronics and Instrumentation activity provides the technical support in the measurement and control fields associated with the cryogenic devices developed in this department.
The role of the Liquefaction, Refrigeration and Characterization Laboratory is to supply all users of the CEA, the Institut Laue Langevin or the European Synchotron Radiation Facility in cryogenic fluids.
The L3C laboratory consists of a mechanical and thermal design office intended for design the experimental devices of the service as well as a set of project managers able to take on projects.
