Nongalvanic thermometry for ultracold two-dimensional electron domains

S. Gasparinetti, M.J. Martínez-Pérez, S. de Franceschi, J.P. Pekola and F. Giazotto

Measuring the temperature of a two-dimensional electron gas at temperatures of a few mK is a challenging issue, which standard thermometry schemes may fail to tackle. We propose and analyze a nongalvanic thermometer, based on a quantum point contact and quantum dot, which delivers virtually no power to the electron system to be measured.
