A continuous closed cycle cooler to operate at a base temperature below 300 mK has been successfully designed and tested by Chase Research Cryogenics in collaboration with Cardiff University Astronomical Instrumentation Group. This compact, relatively low-cost unit has temperature and heat load capability of around 200 µW at 340 mK, and 400 µW at 450 mK. Here we discuss the suitability of this unit for precooling a miniature self-contained dilution module to produce a cryogen-free cooling platform capable of achieving a useful cooling power at temperatures of less than 100 mK.
