In the framework of the AEgIS project a series of steady state and dynamic heat transfer measurements at ultra-low temperatures was conducted in the Central Cryogenic Laboratory at CERN. Two sandwich setups, simulating the behaviour of ultra-cold AEgIS electrodes, were investigated and compared, namely: A sapphire-indium-copper and a sapphire-Titanium-gold-indium-copper sandwich. The total thermal resistivity of both sandwich setups was evaluated as a function of the influence of normal and superconducting thin layers and multiple dielectric-metallic interfaces in terms of Kapitza resistance. The resulting limitations of the electrode's design are presented.
