625 alloy, which will be built using the in-situ alloying of 
commercially pure elemental powders, they are Cr, Mo, Nb, Fe, and Ni 
powders, and have the diameter ranging from 45 um to 150 um. After 
material is prepared, the energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS) 
will be used to analyze the chemical composition and elemental 
distribution, and the electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD) will be 
applied to observe the crystal orientation and grain structure. The 
objective is to broaden the material availability for AM and to explore 
its full potential. Justification for Duty-Free Entry: According to the 
applicant, there are no instruments of the same general category 
manufactured in the United States. Application accepted by Commissioner 
of Customs: July 8, 2021.
    Docket Number: 21-009. Applicant: Yale University, BCT326, 15 
Prospect Street, New Haven, CT 06511. Instrument: [email protected] G-M 
Cryocooler. Manufacturer: CSIC PRIDE (NANJING) CRYOGENIC TECHNOLOGY 
CO., China. Intended Use: The instrument will be used to research on 
superconducting films synthesized in our lab. These phenomena can only 
be brought to life when cooled to cryogenic temperatures created with 
liquid helium. The transition temperature (Tc) and magnetic 
susceptibility of our superconductor samples from the resistive normal 
state to the zero-resistance superconducting states will be measured. 
The instrument would slowly cool the sample to low temperature (4 K = -
269 [deg]C) and measure its resistance and magnetic susceptibility at 
the same time to find the transition temperature Tc. This cryocooler 
will help to cool our sample from room temperature to 4 K, which is 269 
[deg]C below the freezing point in a controlled way. The cooling power 
required here is essential to ensure that we can reach and maintain at 
4 K temperature. The small formfactor and vacuum-compatible design is 
also required for compatibility reasons. Justification for Duty-Free 
Entry: According to the applicant, there are no instruments of the same 
general category manufactured in the United States. Application 
accepted by Commissioner of Customs: July 8, 2021.
