PROPERTIES OF SELECTED MATERIALS AT CRYOGENIC TEMPERATURES

Peter E. Bradley and Ray Radebaugh

The design of systems for operation at cryogenic temperatures requires the use of material properties at these low temperatures.  The properties at cryogenic temperatures can be much different than the room temperature values.  In addition, some properties can be strong functions of temperature.  Property data at cryogenic temperatures are not easy to find.  Many measurements were made at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and other laboratories about 50 years ago.  Some of the results were published in reports that are now out of print, which makes the results unavailable to most researchers.  To correct that problem, NIST initiated a program to critically evaluate cryogenic material properties and to fit the available data for temperatures in the range of about 4 K to 300 K.  The parameters for the fit, as well as a graph of the curve, are available on the NIST cryogenics Web site <www.cryogenics.nist.gov>. The properties available include thermal conductivity, specific heat, linear thermal expansion relative to 293 K, thermal expansion coefficient, and Young’s modulus.  Not all properties are available for all materials.  The materials currently in the database are ones commonly used in the construction of cryogenic hardware.

Five tables are given for important properties for selected materials at cryogenic temperatures, as listed below. The Online Edition of the CRC Handbook has additional temperatures.

Table Contents
1 Thermal Conductivity λ, in units W m-1 K-1
2 Specific Heat at Constant Pressure cp, in units J kg-1 K-1
3 Linear Thermal Expansion (Fractional Change in Length Relative to 293 K)
4 Coefficient of Thermal Expansion α, in units of 10-6 K-1 or 10-8 K-1 as specified
5 Young's Modulus E in GPa

The tables presented here as a function of temperature are the calculated values using the equations given on the NIST cryogenics Web site.  In general, the equations fit a single set of data to within about 1% to 2%, but often several sets of data are used in determining the best fit, in which case deviations can be significantly higher, as much as 5%.  The NIST cryogenics Web site specifies the deviation of the fit relative to the experimental data for each property and each material.  Uncertainties in the experimental data usually are in the range of 2% to 5%, and variations from sample to sample can also lead to similar uncertainties, especially in thermal conductivity.  Some well-characterized materials, such as silicon, are used for standard reference materials.  Thus, uncertainties in the experimental data for the thermal expansion coefficient of silicon are usually less than 0.2%, and the standard deviation of the fit to the data is less than about 0.2% over most of the temperature range. All values refer to ambient pressure, i.e., pressure in the neighborhood of 101.3 kPa.

Copper referred to here is of very high purity 99.99% (4N or better) and may be considered oxygen-free (sometimes referred to as OFHC – oxygen-free high conductivity).  Values are given with respect to the RRR (Residual Resistivity Ratio) which correlates the thermal resistivity and electrical resistivity as the impurity effect and is primarily additive in resistivity.  Higher RRR values indicate higher purity and lower electrical and thermal resistance leading to higher thermal conductivity.  Standard high-purity copper such as grade 101 or 102 has an RRR value of approximately 100.  Higher values may be obtained with considerable effort at minimizing trace impurities by special annealing techniques that can achieve an RRR of about 1000 or greater in some special instances.  Specially obtained high RRR value copper is often used only when very low temperatures (<40 K) and necessarily high thermal conduction at low temperatures are required.

Ti 15-3-3-3 has a nominal composition of 15% V, 3% Cr, 3% Sn, 3% Al, balance Ti.  For the specific measurements documented by Canavan and Tuttle (Ref. 29), the exact composition is 14.88% V, 3.13% Cr, 2.88% Sn, 3.01% Al, balance Ti.  The composition for brass is 65% Cu, 32% Zn, 3% Pb which is free machining.  The composition for BeCu is 2% Be, 0.3% Co, balance Cu.

Searching for Chemicals and Properties

The CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics (HBCP) contains over 700 tables in over 450 documents which may be divided into several pages, all categorised into 17 major subject areas. The search on this page works by searching the content of each page individually, much like any web search. This provides a challenge if you want to search for multiple terms and those terms exist on different pages, or if you use a synonym/abbreviation that does not exist in the document.

We use metadata to avoid some of these issues by including certain keywords invisibly behind each table. Whilst this approach works well in many situations, like any web search it relies in the terms you have entered existing in the document with the same spelling, abbreviation etc.

Since chemical compounds and their properties are immutable, a single centralised database has been created from all chemical compounds throughout HBCP. This database contains every chemical compound and over 20 of the most common physical properties collated from each of the >700 tables. What's more, the properties can be searched numerically, including range searching, and you can even search by drawing a chemical structure. A complete list of every document table in which the compound occurs is listed, and are hyperlinked to the relevant document table.

The 'Search Chemicals' page can be found by clicking the flask icon in the navigation bar at the top of this page. For more detailed information on how to use the chemical search, including adding properties, saving searches, exporting search results and more, click the help icon in to top right of this page, next to the welcome login message.

Below is an example of a chemical entry, showing its structure, physical properties and document tables in which it appears.

Accessibility

The Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT) is a self-assessment document which discloses how accessible Information and Communication Technology products are in accordance with global standards.

The VPAT disclosure templates do not guarantee product accessibility but provide transparency around the product(s) and enables direction when accessing accessibility requirements.

Taylor & Francis has chosen to complete the International version of VPAT which encompasses Section 508 (US), EN 301 549 (EU) and WCAG2.1 (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines) for its products.
