Motivated by two recent works of Micu and Zuazua and Cabanillas, De Menezes and Zuazua, we study the null controllability of the heat equation in unbounded domains, typically or . Considering an unbounded and disconnected control region of the form , we prove two null controllability results: under some technical assumption on the control parts , we prove that every initial datum in some weighted L2 space can be controlled to zero by usual control functions, and every initial datum in L2(Ω) can be controlled to zero using control functions in a weighted L2 space. At last we give several examples in which the control region has a finite measure and our null controllability results apply.
