Kevin Carmichael

Director of Product Management for Device Characterization & Measurement Systems

As part of the team for Lake Shore Cryotronics’ material characterization systems, I am engaged in supporting researchers in some of today’s most exciting science, such as quantum information and quantum computing. It is extremely gratifying to have the opportunity to work directly within these revolutionary scientific areas.

Kevin Carmichael received both his BSci and master’s in Physics at Wright State University, with a concentration in the study of GaAs/AlGaAs heterostructure quantum wells while in graduate school. Before joining Lake Shore, he was at Canberra Industries, managing products and providing application support for high-purity Ge gamma detectors for gamma spectroscopy. In his 10 years with Canberra, Kevin worked with customers at DOE and regulatory compliance labs and in nuclear power, counterterrorism, and industrial applications. He also spent 15 years with Ohmart/VEGA Corp., where he was Director of Engineering and involved in developing radiation-based process control products, including measurement instrumentation for use in the petrochemical industry.

Kevin joined Lake Shore in 2016 as Senior Marketing Product Manager for our material characterization products and was later appointed Director of Applications and Technical Support. In the latter role, he provided application support and worked closely with our scientists to ensure our user base benefited from our application knowledge and full range of product capabilities.

In 2023, Kevin was appointed to his current position, where he works with product engineering and company management on the introduction of new systems for material and device research and develops product roadmaps to ensure that Lake Shore will meet the future needs of our customers, particularly from a usability standpoint. Additionally, Kevin works with leading research institutions on the testing of beta products, coordinates the creation of product marketing and educational materials, conducts technical product training, and attends scientific conferences on behalf of Lake Shore.
