We are always seeking new ways to bring Lake Shore technology to more researchers in more fields and to help advance their work. To this end, Lake Shore recently became a Solutions Partner of Keysight Technologies, a collaboration that will enable Keysight analyzer users to more easily characterize materials over a range of temperatures in […]

Hysteresis loop and molecules

Over the past decade, researchers have increasingly been exploring new ways of using magnetic nanoparticles for a wide range of biomedical applications. A bulk of this work has concentrated on further developing agents for magnetic resonance imaging, magnetic field-controlled delivery of drugs in-vivo, cell separation, and gene targeting, particularly for magnetic field-controlled cancer therapies. Because […]

Lake Shore temperature probes

Lake Shore temperature sensors come in a variety of packages, with various mounting schemes and containers that enable mounting in very tight spaces. For some applications, especially if the sensors have to be immersed in liquid, additional protection is required. So if you are looking to measure in fluid containers, tanks, cryostats, pipes, and other liquid systems, what […]

AGM details

We have added two new videos to the bottom of our VSM/AGM Systems page, explaining how vibrating sample and alternating gradient magnetometry work. In each system, the sample under study is magnetized by a uniform field created between the electromagnets’ poles, but how we sense the magnetic properties for material characterization depends on the type […]

Dr. Leonard Spinu

If you weren’t able to attend last month’s First Order Reversal Curve (FORC) Workshop at the University of Minnesota but would still like to learn more about the FORC technique, organizers have uploaded videos of the workshop talks to the university’s digital conservancy website. Included are videos of: “The FORC Diagram Method and the Preisach […]

Dr. Richard Harrison

Thanks to everyone who attended the First Order Reversal Curve (FORC) Workshop held last week on the campus of the University of Minnesota. Approximately 60 researchers attended the one and a half day event, with the group of attendees evenly represented by physicists, material scientists, and earth and planetary scientists. Organized by Dr. Josh Feinberg […]


If you’re attending the joint Cryogenic Engineering Conference/International Cryogenic Materials Conference in Tucson next week and want to know more about our tests to determine which sensor packaging is most robust, then consider attending our 2 p.m. July 2 presentation during the C3OrG session. The presentation on “Mechanical Robustness of Cryogenic Temperature Sensors Packaged in […]
