Worldwide, we’re seeing a number of technological advances occurring, whether for new modes of transportation, faster computing, or using magnetic nanoparticles to purify water. Many of the people doing this work have used Lake Shore products at the earliest stages of their research. Coming from primarily a test and measurement background, I find it interesting to now be able to engage with more scientists working at these earlier R&D stages where much of the groundbreaking research is being done. And then there’s Lake Shore’s rich history of supporting so many big physics research and space projects, and how we’re positioning ourselves to serve these scientists tomorrow. I am excited to be a part of these efforts going forward.
