Lake Shore Cryotronics, a company that makes measurement equipment over a wide range of temperature and magnetic field conditions, will be discussing its latest systems and instruments for material characterisation at next week’s MRS Spring Meeting & Exhibit in Phoenix.
Representatives will be on hand to answer questions about its cryogenic probe stations and new electromagnet-based 8600 Series VSM, and will be asking for feedback on a precision current/voltage source currently in development by Lake Shore.
On display in Lake Shore’s booth will be its Model TTPX probe station, an entry-level cryogenic station capable of making a wide variety of non-destructive, standard electrical device measurements. Lake Shore offers a full line of micro-manipulated cryogenic probe stations for on-wafer DC, RF, microwave, or THz frequency (75 GHz and up) measurements at temperatures as low as 1.6 K and in fields to over 2 T.
The 8600 Series VSM is the company’s latest in specialised systems for magnetics research. It offers a 4.2K to 1273K available temperature range and fields to 3.26 T, and offers measurement sensitivity up to 33 nemu, 10 ms/pt measurement speed, and simple operation.
The VSM especially benefits research involving low-moment magnetic materials and first order reversal curve (FORC) measurements, flying through complex FORC data collection sequences in a fraction of the time required on previous systems.
Also at MRS Spring, Lake Shore will have on hand a prototype for an innovative new precision current/voltage source. It provides users with a precise, low-noise supply of current or voltage, particularly useful when performing I/V curve and other fundamental material measurements.
The first of Lake Shore’s planned new MeasureReady line of 'built for science, designed for people' characterisation products, the source is as easy to use as a smartphone with an uncluttered touchscreen display, full Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, USB, or LAN connectivity, and a unique mobile app for remote monitoring.
