Abstract

In the late 1950s and early 1960s physicists at the National Research Council (NRC) in Canada made a pioneering series of thermoelectric measurements on metals to temperatures below 0.1 K.1–7 A fitting tribute to their ultralow temperature work is the fact that until recently not a single measurement they made below 0.3 K had been superceded.
