Cryogenic Instrumentation at ProtoDUNE
January 29, 2021
The cryogenic instrumentation of ProtoDUNE successfully operated during the first run of the experiment, providing a comprehensive monitoring of the cryostats, the cryogenics system and the detectors. It includes devices to measure the liquid argon level, the electron lifetime, the temperature of the liquid and gas argon, the pressure inside the cryostat and the contamination of the gas argon, as well as cameras to inspect the most critical detector elements. These systems and their performance are reviewed, and a few aspects of their future upgrade discussed.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
