Paper Abstract

The hybrid cryogenic cooler is an intermittent Joule-Thomson refrigerator with a pre-cooler in the form of a passive radiant cooler. We will review the basic design of the cooler in terms of its evolution, temperature range, mass characteristics, and operation in a micro-gravity environment. We will then describe the special features and advantages that make it attractive for spaceflight applications. Finally, we will discuss application areas, including an example of a specific design.
