A Study in HRT Resolution: Seeking Maximum Sensitivity Among Variations in Sensing Element MaterialThe EXACT (Experiments Along Coexistence near Tricriticality) project endeavors to perform the most rigorous test to date of Renormalization Group theory. In most cases, the theory gives only approximate solutions, but it offers exact predictions in the case of the He-3-He-4 tricritical point. Currently, the project is focused on maximizing the performance of the low-temperature system's HRT (high resolution thermometer) near the tricritical point. The HRT uses a PdMn sensing element, the qualities of which change based on its Mn concentration and whether or not it is annealed. All sensing element combinations will be catalogued, and through the data, the optimum configuration will be reported.
