The operating temperature of the CO2

The operating temperature of the CO2

The operating temperature of the CO2, measured by contact thermocouples, is -28 degrees; this measurements is confirmed by the camera.

Thermal management of the particle-detection electronics is a major issue for the physics experiments running at the LHC at CERN.
In this laboratory test, a metre-long carbon fibre support, destined to be populated with electronics, is cooled down with the use of liquid CO2 running in a steel capillary within the structure.
