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 […]

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 […]


Metals, superconductors, and certain other materials that are characterized by low resistances can sometimes be difficult to measure in a Hall measurement system. For this, we offer the 84033 low resistance measurement option for our 8400 Series HMS. It reduces the resistance noise floor of DC measurements from 100 nV to 3 nV (from 1 µΩ to 0.03 µΩ […]


In response to a request made by a Connecticut teacher via our Facebook page, Lake Shore had the pleasure of helping two budding scientists prepare for the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF), which was held in Pittsburgh in May. The two Greenwich (CT) High School students had earlier this year synthesized novel Fe3O4 based nanoparticles […]

Video overview of the Model 372 AC resistance bridge

In addition to a webpage and downloadable brochure, Lake Shore now has a video explaining many of the features and capabilities of our new Model 372. Please watch it to learn more about: The concept of AC resistance bridge operation and its advantages vs. DC measurement techniques How the instrument is designed to reduce self-heating […]

Cernox sensors from Lake Shore

There are some unique challenges when having to monitor temperatures of superconducting magnets in high-energy accelerator facilities. Scientists require sensors with resolution high enough to detect small temperature changes plus fast thermal response times to detect potential superconducting magnet quenches. The thermometers must also offer magnetic field insensitivity, radiation hardness, and good long-term stability over the […]
