Entropy and temperature

the entropy of a thermodynamical system in a macrostate corresponding to a multiplicity of microstates is S = kB ln adding reversibly heat dQ to the system results in a change of its entropy dS with a proportionality factor T T = dQ/dS high temperature: heating produces small entropy change low temperature: heating produces large entropy change

a temperature is low when kBT is small compared with the characteristic energy of the process considered cryogenic temperatures reveal phenomena with low characteristic energy and enable their application

The WFL law essentially states that good electrical conductors are also good thermal conductors Current leads need good electrical conductors with low thermal conductivity Superconductors are bad thermal conductors with zero resisitivity Build current lead with superconductor up to temperature as high as possible, i.e. HTS
