About Lake Shore Cryotronics, Inc.
Supporting advanced research since 1968, Lake Shore (http://www.lakeshore.com) is a leading innovator in measurement and control solutions for materials characterization under extreme temperature and magnetic field conditions. High-performance product solutions from Lake Shore include cryogenic temperature sensors and instrumentation, magnetic test and measurement instruments, probe stations, and precision materials characterizations systems that explore the electronic and magnetic properties of next-generation materials. Lake Shore serves an international base of research customers at leading university, government, aerospace, and commercial research institutions and is supported by a global network of sales and service facilities.
Cryogenic and Cryogen-free Probe Stations
Lake Shore offers a complete line of cryogenic, vertical or horizontal field, magnet-based, load-lock and high vacuum micro-manipulated probe stations. Lake Shore probe stations enable reliable, unattended measurements at cryogenic temperatures from 1.5 K to 475 K and under the application of magnetic fields up to 30,000 G. Other features include a cryogen-free closed cycle refrigerator base, vacuum to 10-7 torr, and 4-inch wafer probes. These capabilities are ideal for measuring nanoscale electronics, quantum wires and dots, semiconductors, superconductors, spintronic devices, and other materials vital to the future development of nanoelectronic and nanomagnetic products.
New products: Lake Shore recently introduced new continuously variable temperature (CVT) probes that allow for continuous unattended wafer probing of a material sample across a range of temperatures. Developed in collaboration with TOYO Corporation, the probes can be used in any Lake Shore probe station and significantly improve reliability of sample measurement.
Precision Materials Characterization
Lake Shores fully integrated characterization systems include electromagnet and superconducting magnet-based Hall effect measurement systems and electromagnet-based VSM and AGM systems for magnetic measurement, as well as a prototype terahertz (THz) characterization system. Temperature measurement products include sensors, controllers, monitors, transmitters, current sources, an AC resistance bridge, a superconducting magnet power supply, and cryogenic accessories. Magnetic measurement products include benchtop and handheld gaussmeters, fluxmeters, Hall probes, Helmholtz coils, Hall generators, electromagnets, and electromagnet power supplies.
New products: Lake Shores new Model 3062 4-channel scanner card for its Model 336 and Model 350 temperature controllers adds four additional input channels for cryogenic temperature sensors; and the new Model 121 DC current source is suitable for a range of applications such as semiconductor characterization and magnetic and temperature sensor calibration.
Lake Shore acquired Princeton Measurement Corporation in January, adding its MicroMag VSM and AGM systems to its family of magnetic testing products. Lake Shore launched its new THz system for materials characterization in March; the system, currently in testing at several key research institutions, uses non-contact, terahertz-frequency energy to provide valuable insights into phenomenology of emerging electronic and magnetic materials that may eventually be used to build advanced computing devices.
