Influence of environment on tunneling thermometry

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The electromagnetic environment of a tunnel junction can influence significantly the tunneling characteristics. We investigate experimentally a particular environment formed by tunnel junctions and compare the results with a theoretical model. We discuss Single Junction Thermometer and a two junction Coulomb Blockade Thermometer as examples.
