  • Thesis:Development of a Passive Check Valve for Cryogenic Applications
background
Background
  • Astrophysics missions employing Microcalorimetry and Transition edge sensors have a need for sub-Kelvin (<1K) cooling.
  • A Cold Cycle Dilution Refrigerator (CCDR) provides an alternative to the current space based sub-kelvin cooling - Adiabatic Demagnetization Refrigerators or LHe3 Cryostats.
  • The CCDR provides cooling through the endothermic mixing of He3-He4 isotopes at low temperatures.
  • A reversible paramagnetic pump drives the flow through the cycle, however the flow provided is oscillating and must be rectified through the use of check valves.
objectives
Objectives
  • Development, fabrication and testing of a check valve for use in the CCDR.
  • Requirements:
    • Passive – no electric or mechanical actuation
    • Operate at low temperatures (~1.8 K) with a mixture of He3-He4.
    • Seal at low back pressures (~3psi)
    • Negligible cracking pressure required to open
