We have designed and characterized a cryogenic amplifier for use in 3He NMR spectrometry. The amplifier, with a power consumption of ∼ 2.5 mW, works at temperatures down to 4 K. It has a high-impedance input for measuring a signal from NMR resonant circuit, and a 50 Ω differential input which can be used for pick-up compensation and gain calibration. At 4.2 K, the amplifier has a voltage gain of 45, output resistance 146 Ω and a 4.4 MHz bandwidth starting from DC. At 1 MHz, the voltage and current noise amount to 1.3 nV/Hz and 12 fA/Hz, respectively, which yields an optimal source impedance of ∼ 100 kΩ.
