Refrigeration is an important enabler for quantum technology. The very low energy of the fundamental excitations typically utilized in quantum technology devices and systems requires temperature well below 1 K. Expensive cryostats are utilized in reaching sub-1 K regime and solid- state cooling solutions would revolutionize the field. New electronic micro-coolers based on phonon-blocked semiconductor-superconductor junctions could provide a viable route to such miniaturization. Here, we investigate the performance limits of these junction refrigerators.
