Energy Harvesting is the process by which energy is taken from the environment and transformed to provide power for electronics. It is very important in condensed matter Physics, especially at the smallest length scales where electronics operate, to get rid of ambient thermal energy [1]. This project aims to not only take away this heat but also convert it into electrical power. In this talk, I would like to present a brief introduction about how to build an energy harvester with two quantum dots and one heating channel, the fabrication and how to measure this energy harvester at low temperature (100mk).
