28th International Conference on Low Temperature Physics
The Low Temperature Physics Conference is an international event held every three years, under the auspices of the IUPAP through its Commission C5 on Low Temperature Physics. The aim of these conferences is to exchange information and views among the members of the international scientific community in the general field of Low Temperature Physics. It is a tradition that LT offers updates on the various topics, provided by the highest representatives of the field, as well as oral and poster contributions in the different areas. As usual the conference covers five subtopics:
- Quantum fluids and solids
- Cryogenic techniques and applications
- Magnetism and quantum phase transitions
- Quantum transport and quantum information in condensed matter
Gothenburg is situated in the center of Scandinavia, on the Swedish West Coast, and is easily accessed by air. The city’s two universities – Chalmers University of Technology and University of Gothenburg – both have a long tradition in low temperature physics research, particularly superconductivity and quantum transport.
At ultralow temperatures (T< 100 mK) rather small external disturbance might lead to a noticeable overheating. While electron transport measurements the inevitable external EM noise, picked-up and transmitted through electric wires, results in a mismatch between the electron Te and the phonon Tphtemperatures P~W(Te^5-Tph^5), where P is the power dissipated at the sample with volume W. Hence, for sufficiently small nanoelectronic systems the effect might be clearly pronounced. Multiple methods have been suggested to reduce the undesired electron heating. Typically various RF filters are used to cut the impact of noisy EM environment. Often the supporting amplitude vs. frequency data are obtained only at room temperatures analyzing the impact of 'isolated' elements without taking into consideration the wires. Here we describe the custom made multistage RLC filtering system for ultralow temperature nanoelectronic experiments. The amplitude vs. frequency characteristics were measured down to very low temperatures. Distributed elements theory analysis supports experimental data.
