    Abstract

    Problems with measurements at cryogenic temperatures are described. The long leads which are needed to reach to the bottom of the cryostat introduce a number of difficulties. The very low dielectric losses which may be encountered pose special measurement problems. Optimized solutions to these and other problems are described.

    Keywords:

    dielectric measurements, electrical properties, space environment, cryogenics, low temperature
