A very simple effect makes it possible to construct very low temperature refrigerators without the use of low temperature moving parts or the Joule-Thomson effect. The effect, which occurs in many places and is frequently ignored, is described in detail, along with means for using it to build refrigerators capable of achieving low temperatures. A description of experimental models and test results is also included. A temperature 218 deg F below room temperature has been achieved.
