Microcantilevers as probes of closed mesoscopic systems
Fabricating a sub-micron circuit on the end of a cantilever allows us to study it in isolation.
In-situ electron thermometry
Monitoring the devices superconducting transition makes it possible to determine the temperature of the isolated metal ring.
Persistent currents in normal-metal rings
A number of important questions remain unanswered about the properties of dissipationless currents flowing through resistors.
