Regenerative Cryogenic Refrigerators
Part of the The International Cryogenics Monograph Series book series (ICMS)
The development of satellite communications in the 1950s led to the first commercial need for small cryogenic refrigerators to provide 4 K cooling for ground-based parametric amplifiers. The use of these refrigerators has increased significantly since that time with the evolution of several additional cryogenic applications. The most successful of these new applications are:
Military infrared surveillance and target acquisition systems
Superconducting magnets for medical and electrical power systems
Superconducting electronic devices
KeywordsHeat Exchanger Mass Flow Rate Exhaust Valve Pulse Tube Inlet Valve
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
