Paper Abstract

A survey is made about the development of high frequency coaxial PTCs. The coolers cover from 30 K to 200 K and the cooling power levels from hundreds of milliwatts to 10's W. Tests suggest that they have the potential to provide appropriate cooling for HgCdTe-based infrared focal plane arrays from near visible down to very long wave infrared region. The paper also discusses the efforts to realize space qualified cryocooler technologies.
