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.
- 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 has introduced a new electromagnet power supply – the Model 648. This quiet, fault-tolerant and robust 9.1 kW water-cooled supply is optimised for powering large research electromagnets up to 254 mm (10″) in size and is ideal for electromagnet characterisation systems used for magneto-optical studies, magnetic hysteresis tests, susceptibility measurements, Hall effect studies, spin magnetic resonance demonstrations, and biological tests.
Designed for use in high precision laboratory settings that require low electrical noise, the Model 648’s linear design removes the undesirable higher frequency noise typical of many other switch mode power supplies. The low output noise means researchers can obtain greater resolution and finer detail in results drawn from data taken during high sensitivity experiments. By using a convenient bipolar, 4-quadrant operation mode, it provides clean transitions through zero without discontinuities thus eliminating the need for external switching or operator intervention to reverse current polarity.
Built-in fault protection enables the system to survive direct shorts across the output without damage and, reassuringly, the Model 648 also comes with Lake Shore’s full 3 year standard warranty. For more information and a datasheet, please contact us.
