Laboratory of extreme conditions
The Laboratory of extreme conditions has been formed around 2008, after successful construction of home made mini-dilution refrigerator and construction of our first diamond anvil cell. Combination of very low temperatures and high pressures allowed us to study materials under extreme conditions. Pressure is considered as clean and controlled tuning parameter of the physical properties of materials by changing inter-atomic spacing. Now we are operating several DACs and also piston-cylinder pressure cell, where it is possible to perform measurements of electrical resistivity susceptibility and magnetization.
Centre of Low Temperature Physics in Košice has been founded in collaboration of Institute of Experimental Physics of the Slovak Academy of Sciences in Košice and P. J. Šafárik University in Košice. Centre is located in historical building of University, where researchers from SAS and University share several low temperature equipments e.g.: 3He-4He dilution refrigerators, cryo-free refrigerator TRITON 200, 3He refrigerators, 4He refrigerators, PPMS, MPMS, MPMS3, SHPM.
The Slovak Academy of Sciences (SAS) is the main scientific and research institution in Slovakia fostering basic and strategic basic research.
