A miniature cryocooler is used to reduce thermal noise in infrared sensors and laser analyzers. An infrared sensor is applied to industry, security and defense systems and space technology. These technologies have dramatically improved the miniature cryocooler. The word "miniature cryocooler" means a cryocooler that works in 30-80 K of cooling temperature and cooling capacity lower than about 1 W. Trend of R&D, refrigeration principle, Stirling cycle cryocooler technology and pulse tube are presented in the paper.
