Does anyone know how to save/pipe the name of a file to a variable  using Powershell?

For example, say I have a file c:\temp\test.txt

Is there a way to get "text" (<ideally) or "text.txt" to be stored into a variable that I can use later

I have not had any luck with Get-ChildItem or Get-Content.  Thanks!
