Abstract

Solid-state refrigerators based on normal metal/insulator/superconductor tunnel junctions are now a practical means of cooling from pumped 3He bath temperatures to near 100 mK. While integration of NIS refrigerators with transition-edge sensors is underway, a more general-purpose cooling platform is desirable. We report on progress developing a NIS refrigerator designed to cool microelectronics devices on separate chips.
