Miniature Joule-Thomson Refrigeration Systems
Small, compact refrigerators are required for air-borne surveillance systems which are sensitive to very-long-wavelength infrared radiation. The potential use of other devices based on cryogenic properties of materials, such as maser amplifiers and superconducting switches, also depends upon the availability of compact refrigerators. Temperatures of interest are from about -457 to -100°F or from about 1.5 to 200°K.
