Low Heat-Leak YBCO Leads for Satellite-Borne ADR Magnets, Phase I

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

Low Heat-Leak YBCO Leads for Satellite-Borne ADR Magnets, Phase I
Future satellite missions carrying X-ray spectrometers will be cooled to milliKelvin temperatures by multi-stage Adiabatic Demagnetization Refrigerators (ADR), which, in turn will be precooled by closed-cycle cryocoolers. Each stage of the ADR will use a low temperature superconducting magnet, which will periodically be energized via high temperature superconducting (HTS) leads. More »
