Stimulating materials using THz frequency radiation from 0.1 to 10.0 THz can reveal interesting material properties that other techniques miss.
THz represents the “last unexplored frontier” in the electromagnetic spectrum. Because THz frequency energy aligns well with many phenomena of interest in emerging electronic and magnetic materials, it’s rapidly gaining the interest of researchers who see THz as a brand new characterization tool that may help uncover groundbreaking new material properties.
Previously, even room-temperature THz spectroscopic systems have been inaccessible to many researchers due to high cost and complexity of use, and there have been no commercial solutions with integrated cryogenics and high-field capabilities required for electronic materials research.
Until now. Lake Shore’s new 8500 Series THz system is the first affordable, integrated, convenient solution specifically tailored for characterization of research-scale electronic and magnetic materials. It enables fully automated high-resolution THz spectroscopic characterization over a wide range of frequencies, temperatures, and magnetic fields, yielding detailed profiles of material responses. Analysis of these spectral profiles can lead to discovery of interesting physical phenomena not visible with other conventional characterization techniques.
What’s more, it’s been proven effective. For more than two years, Lake Shore has been working in close collaboration with leading materials research institutions to validate the capabilities and measurement methodologies of this system. Now Lake Shore is making the 8500 Series THz system commercially available to all researchers who strive to be at the forefront of their field. More about the 8500 Series...
