Gaussmeters are frequently used in manufacturing QC and test applications. Another area where we are seeing an increasing amount of use is in the medical field. These instruments are being used not only to test the magnetic field uniformity and amplitude of MRI machines, but also in academic labs where scientists are using magnetic field […]

The Virginia Tech Hyperloop pod

We blogged earlier about us partnering with and supplying a gaussmeter and Hall probe to Virginia Tech students competing in the Hyperloop pod design competition. As a follow-up, last week, the Vhyper team unveiled their pod prototype at the university. This video from the event goes into some detail about the pod design (at about […]


Plans are being finalized for the 2nd Annual FORC Workshop, which will be held Sunday, Oct. 30, the day before the opening of the 2016 Magnetism and Magnetic Materials (MMM) conference at the New Orleans Marriott. When making plans for the conference, be sure to plan to arrive early. The workshop will begin with on-site […]

Be an intern at Lake Shore

As with past years at Lake Shore, we were fortunate to have a team of college interns working alongside our full-time staff this summer. We had 22 students in-house, applying their talents and knowledge in various departments, including product development, supply chain logistics, IT, manufacturing, business operations, and marketing. Lake Shore’s internship program involves placing […]


We are happy to hear that Dr. Scott Courts, Lake Shore Applications Scientist, has been named a member of the Board of Technical Directors for the Cryogenic Society of America (CSA). He was elected by the society’s membership, with election results certified at this week’s Applied Superconductivity Conference (ASC) in Denver, and will take office […]

Thanks to LinkPhysics, our authorized sales representative in China, for alerting us to this: a Lake Shore Cryotronics customer was recently featured on the China Central Television (CCTV) as one of the leading researchers in that country. If you are interested, you can watch the video (in Chinese), where at about a minute in, you will […]


To learn more about temperature-dependent characterization for device research, particularly as it relates to the use of our cryogenic probe stations with the Keysight Technologies B1500A Semiconductor Device Parameter Analyzer, be sure to watch this new video presented by Lake Shore Applications Scientist Dr. David Daughton. The video, assembled using slides from a recent webcast […]
