Lake Shore on show at ICNS 2013

Lake Shore Cryotronics Inc of Westerville OH, USA, which makes scientific sensors, instruments and systems for precise measurement and control, is to showcase its materials characterization systems at the 10th International Conference on Nitride Semiconductors (ICNS). Lake Shore offers probe stations, Hall measurement systems (HMS) and a prototype THz system that allows for complex measurements under variable temperature and magnetic field conditions.

ICNS (26-28 August) will feature discussions, poster sessions and an industrial exhibit of scientific and technological advances in materials and devices based on group III-nitride semiconductors. This year’s scientific program topics will include nanostructures, electron transport devices, photovoltaics and energy harvesting, and new materials.

“We are excited to meet with customers at ICNS and discuss how our materials characterization solutions can help advance their research,” said Brad Dodrill, Lake Shore VP of Sales. “Exploration of semiconductor and electronic materials is vital to the development of new technologies, and we’re proud to provide the instruments and systems that help scientists achieve those breakthroughs.”

New Lake Shore probe station catalog

Lake Shore has released a new catalog for its family of cryogenic and cryogen-free probe stations. The downloadable catalog contains detailed specifications for each probe station, as well as descriptions of options and configurations.

Lake Shore offers a complete line of cryogenic, magnet-based, load-lock and high vacuum micro-manipulated probe stations for characterizing the performance of early stage devices and materials. These probe stations enable reliable, unattended measurements at cryogenic temperatures and under the application of magnetic fields up to 30,000 G.

The new catalog provides guidance on choosing systems for specific areas of research and applications, such as for nanoelectronics, semiconductors, MEMS and NEMS, and quantum devices. It provides operating cost and feature comparisons to ensure the system provides the best fit, lowest operating cost, and maximum flexibility for specific research environments. Lake Shore also includes a chart that shows initial costs versus operating costs when liquid helium (LHe) expenses are factored in. For many customers, a cryogen-free probe station may be the best solution, even if they have higher upfront costs than conventional liquid cryogen-cooled models.
