Lake Shore to launch THz Materials Characterisation System and upgrade the CRX-VF Probe Station

Lake Shore Cryotronics have announced a THz technology system that will provide a contactless, fully integrated solution for exploring the electronic, magnetic, and chemical properties of materials such as:

  • Antiferromagnetic resonances: important to spin-based computing
  • Carrier scattering time in semiconductors: important to development of high speed electronics
  • Vibrational resonances in molecular solids: important to chemical identification and research in organic electronic and magnetic materials

Due for release in 2013, Lake Shore are refining the instrument’s capabilities in line with the requirements of leading researchers from labs around the world. Click here for more information on this new THz system and details on how you can contribute to its development.

CRX-VF Cryogenic Probe Station gets an upgrade 

Lake Shore’s Model CRX-VF cryogenic probe station now features:

  • Increased maximum magnetic field: Up from ±2.25 to ±2.5 T
  • Improved vacuum performance: < 5 × 10-7 Torr is now an option for customers whose applications require lower base pressures or less chance of contamination
  • Improved magnetic field at high temperatures: ±2 T from 10 to 400 K and up to ±1 T from 400 to 500 K. Previously, only ±0.5 T was possible above 400 K and no magnetic field was possible above 450 K at all

Ideal for measuring electrical, electro-optical, parametric, high Z, and Hall effect, as well as DC, RF, and microwave properties of materials and test devices, the CRX-VF is widely used to measure nanoscale electronics, quantum wires and dots, semiconductors, and spintronic devices.

Lake Shore at MRS Fall next week – Booth 800

Materials characterisation using the Vibrating Sample Magnetometer

Materials characterisation using the Vibrating Sample MagnetometerLake Shore Cryotronics are exhibiting at the Materials Research Society (MRS) Fall Meeting from November 26th to 30th at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston.

They will be highlighting their wide range of sensors, instruments, and systems used for high-precision materials characterisation research, including their line of cryogenic and cryogen-free probe stations, the new 8404 Hall effect measurement system and Model 336 cryogenic temperature controller.

Lake Shore experts will be on-hand in Booth 800 to discuss recent research developments, talk through any applications issues that scientists are encountering, and help suggest solutions to these issues.
