Thermal Switches

SDL is proficient in design, fabrication, and testing of active and passive differential CTE thermal switches tailored to specific thermal needs. SDL had expertise in a variety of designs that operate from ambient to cryogenic temperatures. Designs include:

  • High reliability differential CTE
  • Zero heat dissipation (passive)
  • Command able (active)
  • Internally-funded, latchable, high-output paraffin-actuated Cyrogenic Latching Instrument Connector (CLIC)
