Danaher Cryogenics Announces Series of Milestones and New Partnerships in Cryogenic and Quantum Technology

Danaher Cryogenics, a leader in manufacturing fully-integrated sub-Kelvin cryostats and engineering elegant cryogenic solutions, and a proud part of the Innosphere Ventures Life Sciences cohort program, has announced a series of achievements that underscore its commitment to advancing scientific research and technology. These include the successful installation of their first Pony Cryostat at Argonne National Laboratory, a new partnership with the University of Colorado Colorado Springs (UCCS) for cutting-edge quantum magnonics research, and the commercial development of the Adaptive Cooling Technology (ACT) Pulse Tube Cryocooler.

The installation at Argonne marks a significant milestone for Danaher Cryogenics, demonstrating their capability in delivering complex cryogenic systems. Meanwhile, their collaboration with UCCS involves the supply of a Model DC3 Palomino Cryostat for UCCS’s Microwave Magnonics Group, furthering research in quantum technologies.

Additionally, Danaher Cryogenics is pioneering the new ACT Pulse Tube Cryocooler, developed in collaboration with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and University of Colorado Boulder. This technology promises unparalleled cooldown speeds, optimizing performance across various operational conditions and enhancing productivity in scientific research.

Charlie Danaher, President and Founder of Danaher Cryogenics, stated, “These initiatives reflect our ongoing commitment to pushing the boundaries of cryogenic technology and supporting the quantum research community. Our partnerships with prestigious institutions like NIST, UCCS, and CU Boulder are vital in our efforts to transform scientific capabilities and commercialize innovative technologies.”

The broader context of these developments is supported by Colorado’s increasing focus on quantum technology. The state has recently facilitated nearly $1.5 million in funding through the Colorado Economic Development Commission to connect research to Colorado’s startup ecosystem and enhance pathways into the quantum workforce. CU Boulder has announced the winners of the 2023-2024 translational quantum research seed grants, part of this initiative, aiming to accelerate lab-to-market transitions for quantum innovations.

These efforts are complemented by the CUbit Quantum Initiative at CU Boulder, a hub designed to advance the regional quantum ecosystem through interdisciplinary research and collaboration.

“Colorado is already a leader in quantum innovation. These new developments and partnerships are set to expand our capabilities and cement our status as a hub for quantum science and technology,” said Eve Lieberman, Executive Director of the Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade.

The ACT Pulse Tube Cryocooler is slated for commercial release in 2025. For more information, please visit danahercryo.com/pulse-tube-cryocooler-announcement.
