Oxford Instruments has won a global tender to supply its advanced cryogenic systems to a renowned Chinese research institute.

The UK company will supply its state-of-the-art superconducting magnet systems together with advanced dilution refrigerator systems, which will help to establish a world-leading synergetic user facility that integrates various extreme conditions, to the Institute of Physics-Chinese Academy of Sciences (IOP-CAS).

This will allow researchers to make groundbreaking discoveries of new material states, states of matter and novel phenomena, furthering our understanding of the structure, properties and performance of these materials on a quantum scale.

Multiple advanced cryogenic systems will be installed at a new Synergistic Extreme Conditions User Facility at the Huairou Science City development in Beijing. The complete suite of systems will be delivered to IOP-CAS in a staged plan through 2020 and 2021.

This new collaboration further strengthens the long-standing relationship between Oxford Instruments and the IOIP-CAS, building on the performance and reliability of the many systems previously provided by Oxford Instruments to IOP-CAS’s existing laboratories.

Ian Barkshire, Chief Executive of Oxford Instruments, commented, “This is an excellent example of the growth we are seeing from customers involved in Physical Science Research and Quantum Technologies where our key enabling technologies and advanced solutions enable fundamental research and accelerate our customers applied R&D.”

“We are delighted to be the provider of choice to the renowned Institute of Physics in Beijing.”
