Abstract
THE BASIC THEORY OF REGENERATIVE CRYOCOOLERS INDICATES THAT OPERATION AT HELIUM TEMPERATURES IS POSSIBLE. HOWEVER,POOR REGENERATOR PERFORMANCE HAS BEEN A BARRIER TO OPERATION BELOW ROUGHLY 10-12 KELVIN. THIS PROPOSAL COVERS THE DEVELOPMENT OF HIGH PERFORMANCE, HELIUM TEMPERATURE REGENERATORS THAT SHOULD LIFT THE OPERATIONAL BARRIER. THE REGENERATORS CAN BE APPLIED WITH VARIOUS REGENERATIVE CYCLES, SUCH AS STIRLING, GIFFORD-MCMAHON, AND ORIFICE PULSE TUBE.
