    Biosphere 2 Scientists Study the Impacts of Drought on Tropical Rainforests

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE TUCSON, AZ – The global climate crisis raises questions about what a hotter, drier world will mean the future of our plants, animals, and ecosystems. An interdisciplinary team of more than 80 scientists from around the world came together to conduct an unprecedented experiment tracking the impacts of drought and drought recovery […]

  • Absolute Pressure Control = Absolute Temperature Control

    Neil Hartmann, CTO   Alicat absolute pressure controllers enable direction of cryogen pressures ensuring precise temperature. Cryogens are loosely defined as gases which liquefy at or below 120°K under standard pressure (760 Torr).1 Cryogens are used for applications including cryopreservation, superconductivity and superfluidity. All of these applications share a need for temperatures under the previously […]
