In this case, we will talk about the thermal conductivity, how we achieve, within the framework of Qualification tests, a really low temperature. We show you the concept of the test setup used.
In addition, for a perfect characterization, components had to be perfectly aligned with optical fibers, so one more additional support was designed to fit these fibers and to allow a perfect alignment with the IR sources.
Every time a component is tested in extreme temperature conditions, it becomes challenging to design a reliable test setup. If, in addition, components must be in vacuum conditions and electro-optical characterization is required at different temperatures, complexity increases exponentially.
One of the most challenging points to achieve is a good heat transmission while in vacuum conditions. Thermal conductivity must be ensured to allow components to reach the required temperatures when shallow temperatures are required in a vacuum; a good test setup design is the key to a successful test.
