Abstract

In the past 20 years, a great need has been developing for compact cryogenic refrigerators to give reliable cryogenic temperatures (2° to 150°K) in small regions, possibly only 1 to 100 cc in volume. As a result, there has been a great deal of activity in the development of small cryogenic refrigerators.
