Abstract: Two continuous operation 18 K/20 K sorption coolers are being developed by JPL for the ESA Planck mission to provide about 200 mW of cooling at 18 K and 1.4 W at 20 K. A detailed performance prediction model has been developed to support the design process and to evaluate the results of a prototype testing.
