The Cryogenic Society of America will once again offer the ‘Foundations of Cryocoolers’ short course just before the International Cryocooler Conference on July 9, 2012 in Universal City, CA.

Presented by Dr. Ray Radebaugh, Consultant to the Physical and Chemical Properties Division of NIST, Boulder, and Dr. Philip Spoor, Development Engineer at Chart/Qdrive, the ‘Foundations’ course provides the background and tools for concepts in cryocooler design for both seasoned experts and those new to the field.

The course is also helpful to marketing professionals, those only familiar with one type of cryocooler and those looking to catch up with recent developments in the last few years. Additionally, this year’s course will feature new material on compressors.

A new area to be covered in this course focuses on compressors, especially those used for Stirling and pulse tube systems in which an oscillating pressure is required.

The ‘Foundation of Cryocoolers’ course will be held at the Sheraton Universal Hotel in Universal City CA, close to many tourist destinations including Universal Studios.
