A Cold Cycle Dilution Refrigerator for Space Applications, Phase I

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

A Cold Cycle Dilution Refrigerator for Space Applications, Phase I
The cold cycle dilution refrigerator is a continuous refrigerator capable of cooling to temperatures below 100 mK that makes use of a novel thermal magnetic pump. The refrigerator will provide continuous cooling at temperatures below 100 mK. This technology will provide cooling for detectors on future infrared and x-ray astrophysics missions and will, in turn, enable NASA to better fulfill strategic sub-goal 3D -- to discover the origin, structure, evolution and destiny of the universe, and search for Earth-like planets.
