New paper in Magnetics Business Technology

For many years, the scientific community has sought an alternative to conventional chemical refrigerant/heat-transfer compressor refrigerators, one that would use considerably less energy and be friendlier to the environment. Researchers have been working to replace the standard vapor-compression refrigerators with commercially viable magnetic refrigerators that rely on the magnetocaloric effect (MCE). Cooling would occur as […]

Remanent hysteresis measurements while characterizing ferroelectric capacitors at variable temperatures

Last November, we discussed briefly how a Lake Shore probe station can be used with a Radiant Technologies test system to characterize piezoelectric (PZT) device performance at 6 K temperature. At that time, our blog post mainly focused on the ability to rapidly characterize the device’s ferroelectric properties, and to illustrate, we included a video […]

Dr. Cosmin Radu presenting a poster at MMM in Hawaii

Thanks to all of you who stopped by our booth at the 59th Magnetism and Magnetic Materials (MMM) Conference in Hawaii last week. Also, while there, we hope you had a chance to catch the poster session by Dr. Cosmin Radu, Lake Shore Applications Scientist. In his poster presentation, Dr. Radu discussed research into the […]

Model 340 option cards now on sale for onl $560 (US price)

If you own a standard Model 340 cryogenic temperature controller and sometimes feel that two inputs aren’t enough, why not upgrade your instrument with a 3462 option card to bring the total number of inputs to four? These additional inputs are designed to perform to the same high standard as the original Model 340 inputs […]

Model 8425 Hall system with cryogenic probe station

Customers occasionally ask for even more specialized characterization and measurement tools than those offered in our standard systems. And, more often than not, we’re able to accommodate them by customizing a system for their unique application. When the same type of custom system is requested frequently, it only makes sense to offer it as a […]

New Model 372 AC bridge and temperature controller

  Lake Shore is now taking orders for the new Model 372 AC resistance bridge and temperature controller. This next-generation instrument represents the first major update to the Lake Shore AC resistance bridge product line since the release of our Model 370. The features and capabilities that made the Model 370 so popular are included […]

3D FORC diagram of an exchange bias thin film

In past blog entries, we discussed the value of first-order-reversal-curve (FORC) analysis when characterizing magnetic interactions in nickel (Ni) nanowires and rocks. Now, we’re looking at how FORCs are beneficial for analyzing: Exchange bias phenomena in magnetic multilayer films, which are commonly used as read heads in high-density recording media. For more on this, read […]
