Cryogenic regimes of operation are, for various reasons, highly advantageous for normal conducting accelerator structures. Liquid cryogen-based systems are costly to implement and maintain. As a result, developing cryogenic test facilities at a smaller more cost effective scale using cryo-coolers is attractive. Before real implementations of a cryo-cooler based beamline, a significant amount of information is necessary regarding the behavior and properties of various components and materials at

Finding this information lacking for our particular beamline case and by extension similar electron beamlines, we endeavor to generate a thorough beamline-relevant material and component properties down to the range of a liquid nitrogen temperatures (77 K) and the nominal operating temperature of a modest Gifford-McMahon cryocooler (45 K).
