Abstract

Cryogenic refrigerators using thermal regenerators have been particularly successful for small heat load applications. Regenerators are used in a number of refrigeration cycles such as the Stirling cycle [1,2], the Gifford-McMahon cycle [3,4], the Solvay cycle [5], pulse tube refrigeration [6–8], and the Vuilleumier cycle [9]. These cycles have many advantages resulting from the use of thermal regenerators. A very important advantage is that regenerators permit simple construction and, therefore, can reduce the cost of refrigeration systems.
