Abstract

Pulse tube refrigerators have been under development at Syracuse University since 1962. These efforts have resulted in the construction of units that have achieved 124°K in one stage and 79°K in two stages from room temperature. Another single stage unit operating from 65°K achieved 30°K. Several unique features and reasonably good efficiency make pulse tube refrigeration particularly well suited for certain cryogenic cooling applications.
