Lake Shore Cryotronics and Cascade Microtech announce today that the companies have entered into a cross-marketing agreement, a partnership that is designed to help guide customers to a cryogenic probe station that is best suited for their needs. Under the terms of this partnership, we have agreed to reference each other’s cryogenic probe station models […]

2015 FORC Workshop at the University of Minnesota

First order reversal curve (FORC) analysis is valuable for gaining insight into the relative proportions of reversible and irreversible components of various materials. FORCs are an elegant, nondestructive tool for the characterization of magnetic behavior within carefully engineered materials, as well as natural samples. If you are a scientist, an engineer, or a grad student, and […]

Hall voltage vs. field for both low resistance (orange) and standard resistance (blue)

Metals, superconductors, and certain other types of materials are characterized by low resistances and can sometimes be difficult to measure in a Hall effect measurement system. This is because below about 1 Ω, the voltage across the sample becomes too small to measure reliably. In theory, it may seem practical to simply increase the current […]

Michael Swartz

Lake Shore Cryotronics is proud to announce that Michael Swartz, President and CEO of the company, has been named the Westerville Business Person of the Year for 2014 by the Westerville (OH) Area Chamber of Commerce. Swartz will receive the award tomorrow evening during an awards program by the Chamber in Westerville. The theme of […]

Regular readers of our blog may be familiar with the work of Dr. Richard Harrison. We’ve discussed in the past how Professor Harrison’s Nanopaleomagnetism Group at the University of Cambridge has used our VSM/AGM system for paleomagnetic research. Also, last year, he authored a Magnetics Technology International article on the use of first order reversal […]

Blue LEDs

With the U.S. Department of Energy’s recent announcement about new funding for solid state lighting (SSL) R&D, we thought this would be a good time to summarize how Lake Shore systems and instruments can benefit research into light emitting diode-related materials for both SSL and new display technologies. More R&D is being done in the field, […]

Probe landing video series

Landing a probe is probably the most important step in achieving reliable, repeatable measurements. In our user manuals, we provide detailed instructions on correctly landing various Lake Shore probes on a sample landing pad in a probe station. But, as always, actually seeing a demonstration on how this is done can be much more helpful […]
