Measuring Earth’s magnetic field strength and orientation

The new F71 Multi-axis teslameter from Lake Shore Cryotronics features in an excellent video on the YouTube channel of Brainiac75.

In the short film he demonstrates how to measure Earth’s magnetic field strength and orientation with the instrument’s sensitive 3-axis probe, proving how much easier it is to do so without using a compass, magnets or a protractor – you need to watch from the beginning to see this bit.

Brainiac75 features a lot of magnet/magnetism related material on his channel, so it’s well worth a look. It may get stuck on you, as we were quite drawn to it!

Using CryoLab to measure Seebeck coefficients: Video from DEMCON kryoz explains

The Seebeck effect is the direct conversion of temperature differences to electric voltage and vice versa. A thermoelectric device creates voltage when there is a different temperature on each side. Conversely, when a voltage is applied to it, it creates a temperature difference.

By using the CryoLab from DEMCON kryoz, it is possible to measure the Seebeck coefficient of a material sample, wire or thin film from 373 Kelvin down to cryogenic temperatures. In this informative video, DEMCON kryoz demonstrate how such measurements are made using their equipment. For more information, please contact us.

 

 


The Model 155 MeasureReady™ power source offers unprecedented simplicity and intuitive operation as video shows

Lake Shore’s new Model 155 MeasureReady™ precision I/V source is ideal for demanding scientific applications requiring a precise low-noise supply of current or voltage, for example electronic material characterisation. Supplying 1 W maximum from DC to 100 kHz over a broad output range, these power supplies deliver a solid foundation for I/V curve, Hall effect, and other fundamental measurements.

The clutter-free touch display with a unique TiltView™ screen presents a natural and engaging user interface. No confusing buttons or long learning curves make the Model 155 as easy to use as a smartphone. With similar connectivity – Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, USB, plus LAN – it offers convenient remote operation via LabVIEW™, a custom PC interface, or mobile app.

Features

  • Bipolar, 4-quadrant I/V source
  • DC and AC modes supported up to 100 kHz
  • Full scale ranges from 10 mV to 100 V (1 µA to 100 mA)
  • 0.001% programming resolution
  • Low peak to peak noise: from 1 µV at 10 mV full scale
  • Manual and autorange function
  • Smartphone-based touchscreen user interface

Please contact us for more information.

Application Note Series complements Elliot Scientific Optical Tweezers range

A number of experiments were recently commissioned by Elliot Scientific to test and demonstrate the capabilities of our standard E3500 Optical Tweezers system. These were undertaken by a team at St. Andrews University and are available as a series of Application Notes with accompanying videos.

There are four papers that look at:

  1. Trap Stiffness
  2. Trapping & Manipulation
  3. Cell Stretching
  4. Photoporation & Transfection

All can be read online at Issuu or downloaded from our website. The videos can also be viewed or downloaded here, or seen via our YouTube channel.

Nano-Cyte and MadPLL Systems added to our Mad City Labs’ Range

Elliot Scientific is now offering two recently introduced systems from leading nanopositioning experts Mad City Labs.

Nano-Cyte™LC is an image based, platform independent stabilisation system that changes the nature of live cell imaging. Suddenly, temperature gradients, sample and microscope drift are things of the past as the Nano-Cyte™LC system delivers unprecedented stability in the nanometer regime allowing long term imaging experiments like none before. [Video] [Brochure]

MadPLL® is a powerful instrument package that allows a user to create an inexpensive, high resolution resonant scanning probe microscope from Mad City Labs nanopositioning systems. In short, MadPLL® can be used to create an ‘instant’ closed loop AFM or NSOM at a fraction of the cost of commercial systems. MadPLL® is suitable for nanoscale characterisation and nanoscale fabrication applications such as optical antennas, nano-optics, semiconductors, data storage, and more. [Video] [Brochure]
