CPX-VF probe station used for CNT-based RF bolometer development research

From time to time, we like to highlight how our cryogenic probe stations are being used in interesting research. Our latest application focus is on work led by the University of Akron and [...]

Preventing magnetic interference in electronic device measurement

The trouble with shielding

Electric fields and magnetic fields have similarities, but they also have distinct differences. Studies show that many students completing an electrical engineering [...]

Avoiding ground loops in electronic device measurements

In a closed circuit, a return path must be provided for current to flow back to the power source; this return is often referred to as an electrical ground. Ideally, these ground connections would [...]

New parametric probe options for cryogenic probe stations

We’re now offering two new dual-connector parametric probe kits that make it much easier to perform capacitance-voltage (C-V) and four-point measurements in a Lake Shore probe station.

Preventing AC leakage current in electronic device measurement

When performing electrical characterization measurements with AC signals, appreciable leakage current can occur as the result of two separate phenomena:

  1. AC leakage current via parasitic cable [...]

Farewell, Cassini! Lake Shore sensors and learning about Saturn

The Cassini Huygens mission is on its final countdown. Launched 19 years ago, this spacecraft has been gathering information about Saturn, its moons, and even Jupiter and other planets. Lake Shore

New paper on use of high-temperature FORCs for magnetic nanocomposite material research

A new paper just published in MRS Advances and co-authored by a Lake Shore senior scientist explores the utility of first order reversal curve (FORC) analysis for characterizing nanocomposite [...]

Why low noise matters for I-V measurement of electronic devices

Instrumentation performance is paramount to ensuring accurate characterization of electronic materials and devices; however, electrical measurement equipment performance varies widely. One often [...]

New ring magnet kit option for probe stations

If you have the need for some magnetic field in your experiments but not enough to warrant having a full magnet in your probe station, this new ring magnet kit option may be the solution for you.

Measurement speed critical for FORC measurements

There are three important considerations when selecting a magnetometry measurement technique that is best suited for a material: sensitivity, speed, and temperature or field range over which the [...]
