In the last years, we have developed a scanning probe microscope operated in a 3He-4He dilution refrigerator below 0.1 Kelvin which uses single-electron transistors on a 1D tip array as locally probing electrometers. Hall potential profiles in the integer but also fractional quantum Hall regime have been measured.
