There is no "dry mirror voltage" nor "maximum peltier current"
seen in the lower to middle stratosphere.
--> Problems associated with the controller optimization and
with the insufficient air flow.
(See Sapporo-EES results
in June-August 2003).
--> The essential factor here is the small amount of water
vapor available for the condensate on the mirror
in the upper atmosphere.
Development of a stratospheric model of Snow White
with a two-stage Peltier cooler, or
with an additional hot-side cooling by dry ice, etc.
Sometimes the Peltier's cooling strength is not enough
even in the middle troposphere.
The Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) problems of
the TMAX-C and Snow White by the RS80 transmitter.
The Peltier current data is the most sensitive.
