Paper Abstract

This paper provides a brief description of the development of adiabatic demagnetization refrigerators (ADRs) at Berkeley for cooling bolometric infrared detectors. This development was stimulated by the needs of the Multi-Band Imaging Photometer (MIPS) for the NASA Space Infrared Telescope Facility (SIRTF). A description will be given of the ways in which classical ADR technology has been developed to provide a compact refrigerator to meet the requirements of this space experiment. Similar refrigerators will be useful in a number of forthcoming space missions for cooling both infrared and X-ray bolometers.
