We have developed a simple and small thermal link for cooling a cylindrical cartridge, on which device under test is mounted. It consists of a crown-like ring with an inner diameter of 170 mm or 140 mm and a clamping belt, which is a metal spring or nylon. A thermal conduction of the thermal link is achieved as the crownlike ring clamps the disk-like stage of the cartridge with external force of a clamping belt. This link can be applied at various temperature ranges from 2 K to 100 K. The

This link is also effective to reduce mechanical vibration to be 6 µm (peak-to-peak) in the horizontal direction of the cartridge. This link is easily fabricated and is useful to various detectors which require to be cooled down.

We developed a cryogenic system, which houses 3 cartridge-type superconductorinsulator-superconductor receivers for millimeter and submillimeter wavelengths. Since it was designed as a prototype receiver of the Atacama Large Millimeter/ submillimeter Array (ALMA), high stability, accurate alignment, and easy handling were required. To meet these requirements, the cryogenic system included the following technologies: 1) a thermal link without screws for receiver cartridges; 2) a central support

The cryostat and receiver cartridges are composed of three stages. The temperatures on the 4 K, 12 K, and 100 K stages of the cartridge are 3.5 K, 13.4 K, and 78.3 K, respectively. The thermal conductances of the thermal links showed high performances of 1.7 W K −1 at the 4 K stage, 5.6 W K −1 at the 12 K stage, and 3.3 W K −1 at the S. Yokogawa et al. Cryogenic System for SIS Receiver [Vol. , 100 K stage. The mechanical vibration on the 4 K stage of the cartridge was reduced to one-tenth, as small as ≈ 2 µm peak-to-peak, compared to that on the 4 K coldhead of the cryocooler, ≈ 20 µm peak-to-peak. The temperature ripple on the cartridge was reduced to as small as 2 mK peak-to-peak, which corresponds to one-seventh of the ripple on the 4 K coldhead with an He pot. ∆T is an expected temperature loss originating in the thermal link.
