Heat current measurements have recently attracted a large interest because of their importance for understanding edge state transport and low-level energy excitations in the integer and fractional quantum Hall regimes [1, 2]. At a very fundamental level quantum mechanics predicts of a universal limit to the heat flow across a single channel, independent of the type of particle carrying the heat. However, experimentally, this has only been demonstrated for phonons. We report on the quantitative measurement of this limit for Fermi particles across a single electronic channel tailored in a two-dimensional electron gas, using noise thermometry. The demonstrated agreement between the experiment and theoretical value of the heat flow limit - within 10 % - establishes experimentally this basic building block of quantum thermal transport . The investigation opens a pathway to the nanoscale and coherent control of heat currents.
