  1. High Efficiency 10K Cryocooler for Space Application

    SBC: Advanced Mechanical Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A compact, reliable, efficient and inexpensive crycooler requiring less than 1kW of power for 2W of colling at 10K will be developed and demonstrated. This performance is at least twice as efficient as the best current state-of-the-art for smalllow-temperature crycoolers. The proposed technical approach, whose feasibility has been investigated and confirmed in Phase I of this project, is to appl ...
