                         This is followed by a description of the construction of the 
                         infrastructure, initial tests, and final basic assembly at the 
                         LESBT. Results are presented for the thermal and mechanical 
                         behaviors of the cryogenic system and for the development of 
                         active transducers in its various stages, culminating with the
