Abstract

The recently introduced Pulse Tube Refrigeration [1,2] is primarily of interest because of its great simplicity which should lead to very high reliability. The capability of reaching and maintaining temperatures in the range of 30°-150°K with no low temperature moving parts, relatively low pressures (50–400 psia), and low pressure ratios (3–5) are very important advantages for small low temperature spot coolers requiring relatively small refrigeration capacities.
