FIG. 4.

Measured temperature on the surface of a silicon substrate as a function of the heating power at (squares) and (circles) distances from the pointlike heater. The solid line represents the dependence of temperature on heating power at distance from the heater calculated from Eq. (17) with absorbtion coefficient . The results of the solution of Eq. (18) with the boundary conditions (19) for are shown as dotted and dashed lines.

FIG. 6.

Optimization of thermal design for the circuits of different complexities. Designs with both circuits mounted at the same holder: (a) SFQ and quantum circuits on the same Si chip, (b) substrate with improved thermal insulation between two parts, and (c) two-chip solution. Separate cooling of circuits with different temperatures and power dissipations: two chips with independent cooling connected by rf lines (d) and inductively (or capacitively) coupled (e).
