Carbon nanotubes (CNT) are being intensively developed for novel electronics. Electron cooling by superconductor-insulator-nanotube (SIN) tunnel junctions could be extremely effective due to the small volume of the CNT. A novel concept of a cold-electron bolometer with a CNT as an absorber should demonstrate record sensitivity due to the very low temperature that is predicted to be reached in the CNT (less than the phonon temperature). Objectives of this work are to demonstrate effective electron cooling in superconducting nanostructures comprising of carbon nanotubes and to develop a supersensitive cold-electron bolometer based on a cooled carbon nanotube as absorber.
