Abstract

The experimental performance of the BEI One Watt Linear (OWL) Cooler is presented in this paper. In particular, the compliance with the Army specification will be discussed in detail. The cooldown time of the BEI OWL Cooler (to 77K) is less than 7 minutes with a thermal mass of 1465 Joules (at 23C ambient temperature). Its refrigeration capacity at 77K is 1.8W with 40W of input power, and 1W with 25.8W input power (at 23C ambient temperature).
