Reaching low temperatures, stage 3: adiabatic demagnetisation, 1 mK-
Although the absolute zero of temperature can never be reached, as discussed in Chapter 1, it may be approached indefinitely closely. To date, the lowest temperature obtained in practice is of the order 10−8 K. This has been achieved by adiabatic demagnetisation of copper nuclei.
