Institute of Photonics: Elliot Scientific at 20th Anniversary next week

To mark their 20th anniversary and the International Year of Light, the Institute of Photonics will be holding a special celebration. On Wednesday, November 4th., world-leading experts will be presenting on a wide range of photonics research topics including: diamond photonics, visible light communications, gallium nitride based lighting, colloidal quantum dot devices and optogenetics.

Alongside the conference, a small exhibition of key suppliers to academia and industry will include Elliot Scientific. We will on hand to offer advice and demonstrate a select range of products and equipment that delivers our solution science to researchers.

If you are in Glasgow next week, do visit the University of Strathclyde for the Institute of Photonics 20th Anniversary and drop by the Elliot Scientific display. We look forward to meeting you.



Lake Shore Cryogen-free Probe Station Range Extended

Lake Shore have announced the launch of two new probe stations, adding to their range of versatile cryogen-free models. The Model CRX-VF is a micro manipulated probe station used for non-destructive testing of devices on full and partial wafers up to 51 mm (2″) in diameter. It has been designed for the measurement of electrical, electro-optical, parametric, high Z, DC, RF, and microwave properties of materials and test devices such as nanoscale electronics, quantum wires and dots, semiconductors, and spintronic devices. The sister Model CRX-EM-HF is an electromagnet-based micro manipulated probe station for full and partial wafers up to 25 mm (1″) in diameter. Both machines now come with Lake Shore’s new 3-year warranty.

CRX-VF features:

  • 2.25 T vertical field superconducting magnet (field dependent on temperature)
  • Cryogen-free operation from 10 K to 500 K
  • Control stability to 10 mK
  • Up to six probe arms
  • Up to 51 mm (2 in) diameter wafers
  • Sample exchange cycle time of <8.5 h
  • Low vibration design: <1 µm at sample stage (X, Y, and Z axes)

CRX-EM-HF features:

  • 0.6 T horizontal (in-plane) field electromagnet
  • Cryogen-free operation from 8 K to 400 K
  • Control stability to 10 mK
  • Up to four probe arms
  • Up to 25 mm (1 in) diameter wafers
  • Sample exchange cycle time of <4.5 h
  • Low vibration design: <1 µm at sample stage (X, Y, and Z axes)
  • 360° sample stage rotation option
