Peregrines innovation will reduce the required input power, increase a coolers systems margin for a giving cooling load and reduce vibration accordingly for Cryocoolers. Our innovation will enhance the thermal conductivities of structures associated with the cryocooler, enable much more efficient heat removal and thereby produce a more efficient system. Effectively we will be increasing the thermal conductivities of the structures associated with the Cryocoolers by embedding Thermal Pyrolytic Graphite within a matrix of material to produce a thermal conductivity 5 times higher than current available materials. As cryocooler technologies attempt to cool components down around the 4o
K level, waste heat and the management thereof becomes critical to the performance of the cryocooler. Thermal conductivity structures made from our innovation possessing a thermal conductivity of 700 W/mK will eliminate thermal loads more effectively and will lead to a more efficient and better performing cryocooler. Phase I has proven feasibility, Phase II will development and demonstrate our innovation resulting in a flight component for the MIRI cooling system for the James Webb Space Telescope.
