Inside this Faraday Cage, rated at 100 db attenuation at 10 Gigahertz, one can find a brand spanking new dilution refrigerator capable of maintaining ~16 milli-Kelvin during continuous operation and ~8 milli-Kelvin in single shot mode. Also contained within is a 9 Telsa superconducting magnet. The shielded room prevents interference from local electromagnetic radiation, such as cell-phones and radio noise.
