ET-meeting, 22 th Oct N. KIMURA/KEK Temperature of the test mass/mirror < 23 [K] Inner radiation shield have to be cooled to < 8 [K] The test mass have to be cooled without introducing excess noise, especially vibration due to cryocoolers. Easy access and enough capacity to installation work around the mirror. Allowable size as large as possible under public transport regulation and KAGRA tunnel. Meets ultra high vacuum specification < [Pa] The requirements for KAGRA Cryogenic Adopt Pulse Tube-type Cryo-cooler units with very low vibration mount based on the CLIO type. Adopt conduction cooling technique with high pure metal such as 6N class Aluminum. No use cryogenic fluid cause of vibration noise such as liquid helium flow. Analyzed the cryostat response to ground Kamioka-mine. Heat load from components as low as possible. Adopt very low outgas super insulation system for under ultra high vacuum < [Pa], and polish by Electrical Chemical Baffling for inner surface of the vacuum chambers. Meets the requirements for the KAGRA Cryogenics

It was confirmed that the most of resonant frequencies are cause of strength of the vacuum chamber, and weaker than that of inner shield. These results have been feedback to the duct shield design.

ET-meeting, 22 th Oct N. KIMURA/KEKSummary KAGRA cryogenics consisting of cryostat and cryo- cooler units was designed, fabricated, and tested their performances during 2011JFY and 2012JFY. 2. At the performance test, following items were confirmed and verified; The cooling and vibration performance of sixteen cryocooler units. The cooling performance of all the four cryostats. Vibration on the surface of inner radiation shield. Experiment with half size of dummy cryo-payload 3. Experiment with proto type duct shield was conducted, and result was agreed with predicted heat load. But, need more analysis work. 4. Design of the production of duct shield were almost finished. Now, We are focusing our work on fabrication of the duct shields and preparing performance test. Finally, we could achieve the big mile stone which completed the cryostats on time!
