Radiation sensors based on the heating effect of absorbed radiation are typically simple to operate and flexible in terms of input frequency, so they are widely used in gas detection1, security2, terahertz imaging3, astrophysical observations4 and medical applications5. Several important applications are currently emerging from quantum technology and especially from electrical circuits that behave quantum mechanically, that is, circuit quantum electrodynamics6. This field has given rise to…

Axion quasiparticles for axion dark matter detection
It has been suggested that certain antiferromagnetic topological insulators contain axion quasiparticles (AQs), and that such materials could be used to detect axion dark matter (DM). The AQ is a

Photon-mediated thermal relaxation of electrons in nanostructures.
It is found that, at very low temperatures, the photon conductance is the dominant route for thermal equilibration, while at moderate temperatures this relaxation mode adds one quantum of thermal conductance to that due to phonon transport.
