Abstract

In this article we review the use of the tunnel junction arrays for primary thermometry. In addition to our basic experimental and theoretical results we stress the insensitivity of this method to the fluctuating background charges, to nonidealities in the array and to magnetic field. Important new results of this article are the low temperature corrections to the half width and depth of the measured conductance dip beyond the linear approximation. We also point ou that short arrays, single tunnel junctions in particular, show interesting deviations from the universal behaviour of the long arrays.
