Cryogenic material properties database 2006.

The authors present an update to a program simply titled the Cryogenic Materials Property Database. The primary goal for this program is to compile, critically evaluate, and provide old and new properties data in a more usable predictive equation form focusing on primary properties such as thermal conductivity, thermal expansion, specific heat, and Young's modulus for a temperature range of 4 to 300 K. To facilitate the widest possible access to this data, the authors have established a website at to provide this information. In this paper they present an updated list of the materials and properties currently in the database.
