Certain types of spacecraft payloads, especially infrared equipment, must have critical components cooled to cryogenic temperatures in order to obtain adequate sensitivity. As the cryogenic temperature is lowered or the needed cooling capacity is increased, the refrigerators that produce the cooling become larger, and their operation may significantly influence the spacecraft design.
