In labs across Europe physicists are pushing the boundaries of how far we can cool the electrons in nano-fabricated circuits and quantum-enhanced devices. The cryogen-free revolution in dilution refrigeration has liberated researchers from a reliance on helium, a costly and non-renewable resource, and hugely expanded the numbers of cooling machines available for new science and quantum technology applications which exploit the properties of materials at kelvin and millikelvin temperatures.
