You may recall us announcing last month that Lake Shore’s Brad Dodrill would be presenting a poster session “First-Order-Reversal-Curve Analysis of Nanoscale Magnetic Materials” during the TechConnect World Innovation Conference & Expo. If you are interested in reading the paper that served as a basis for the poster session, you can download it here. Co-authored […]

Upgrade your Lake Shore probe station to never need LHe again

The American Physical Society (APS) has kicked off a new program designed to help academic researchers—particularly, individual users—more reliably and affordably procure liquid helium. APS is working with the American Chemical Society (ACS) and the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) on this pilot program. What they want to do first is assemble a trial group of […]

F. Leonard from Sandia National Labs

If you’re a reader of Photonics Online, you might have seen this recent article on a new type of detector that can absorb terahertz (THz) waves. As detailed in the article, researchers at Rice University have collaborated with Sandia National Labs and the Tokyo Institute of Technology in developing thin films of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) […]


Next week, the annual Electronic Materials Conference (EMC) will be held in Santa Barbara, CA, where Lake Shore will be on hand to answer questions about our cryogenic probe stations, Hall effect measurement systems, and our new Model 8501 THz system for materials characterization. Because EMC is the premier gathering of scientists involved in the characterization […]

Use the Keithley 4200 along with Lake Shore probe stations

You might have read in our probe station catalog that capturing various temperature measurements can be an automated process by adding a Keithley parameter analyzer to a Lake Shore probe station application. This is quite a time-saver for many customers—especially when measuring I-V curves or sheet resistance at a number of temperatures. Instead of having to […]


If you are going to next week’s TechConnect World Innovation Conference & Expo in National Harbor, MD (Washington, D.C.), please consider attending our poster session, “First-Order-Reversal-Curve Analysis of Nanoscale Magnetic Materials,” which will be presented by Brad Dodrill, Lake Shore Senior Scientist and VP of Sales. The presentation will be among those held Wednesday, June […]

Model 8501

Graphene, because of its super-thin yet durable and ductile structure, lends itself to possible use in many new applications, including next-generation sensor designs. The most recent Journal of Materials Chemistry C includes a paper on the study of flexible graphene-based materials intended for gas sensors of the future. In the paper (available for download by […]
