The lock-in amplifier explained and reimagined

Measurement of electrical signals, voltage, and current is one of the most important methods used by researchers to characterize electronic materials. But electrical signals are often at very low [...]

Read our 'Low-Level Measurements of Nanostructures' tech note

The study of new semiconducting materials, high temperature superconductors, photovoltaic devices, and organic electronic materials typically requires low-level sourcing and measurement because [...]

Ferromagnetic resonance (FMR) measurements using our MCS-EMP or 8600 VSM

New from Lake Shore Cryotronics: an installation kit that enables you to easily use a NanOsc Instruments PhaseFMR and PhaseFMR-40 spectrometer with our MeasureReady™ MCS-EMP or 8600 Series VSM [...]

The technology behind the M81-SSM’s precise signal synchronization

One of the most unique features of our new modular MeasureReady™ M81-SSM synchronous source measure system is its patent-pending MeasureSync™ signal synchronization technology. This real-time [...]

What are the differences between pulse tube and Gifford-McMahon cryocoolers?

It’s a question we get often from customers who are evaluating their options for sample cooling: What are the main differences between pulse tube (PT) cryocoolers and Gifford-McMahon (GM) [...]

In Memorium: Scott Griffith (1972 – 2021)

With heavy hearts, we are sad to report that we recently lost a member of the Lake Shore Cryotronics family. Scott Griffith, who many of our colleagues and sales partners in the field interacted [...]

New paper references the use of 8600 Series VSM for magnetofossil research

A paper just published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States describing the study of magnetofossils as environmental change biomarkers references the use of a [...]

July 10 is Helium Conservation Day

Liquid helium is the lifeline of tens of thousands of scientists and engineers across the global discovery and innovation landscape, including universities, industries, and national laboratories. [...]

Avoid buyer's remorse — evaluate product specs with a critical eye

Have you ever looked at a product with specifications that seem too good to be true?  As it turns out, you may be right. Far too many product specifications are carefully worded to sell units [...]

Fundamentals of magnetic measurement

As magnets and assemblies arrive at your facility from magnet manufacturers, quality control engineers measure to confirm the performance of the unit's magnetic characteristics. Testing might [...]
