Abstract:

Applied research was carried out on the cooling of infrared radiation detector cells. In particular, problems associated with the insulation and transfer of cryogenic liquids were studied. A vapor-shielded vacuum-insulated closed loop transfer line was suggested as an optimum system for increased transfer efficiency. A new superinsulation material based on silverized quartz fibers was developed and incorporated in transfer lines. Various aspects of the technical applications of these developments are described and critically discussed. Author
