I start by describing how heat currents can be measured in electrical circuits in a low temperature environment. Then I move to two current experiments. The first one is on electronic heat transport through a single-electron transistor, where Wiedemann-Franz law is not obeyed due to Coulomb interaction and quantum processes. The second experiment is on photonic heat transport through a superconducting qubit, where the system acts as an open quantum system with either the qubit-resonator or the resonator-bath coupling acting as the weak coupling.
