Lake Shore will exhibit its range of materials characterization solutions at the Nanotech Conference & Expo 2013, May 12 – 16 in Washington, D.C. Scientists regularly use Lake Shore’s characterization systems to pursue nanomaterial research. The Nanotech conference is the world’s largest nanotechnology event, delivering application-focused research from the top international academic, government, and private industry labs.

Vice President of Sales Brad Dodrill will be showcasing Lake Shore’s suite of cryogenic probe stations and advanced materials characterization systems, including its recently expanded line of magnetometers and prototype terahertz (THz) system. Lake Shore acquired Princeton Measurement Corporation in January, adding its MicroMag™ VSM and AGM systems to the Lake Shore family of products for measuring the properties of magnetic material samples. Lake Shore launched its new THz system for materials characterization in March 2013. The system, currently in testing at several key research institutions, uses non-contact, terahertz-frequency energy to provide valuable insights into phenomenology of emerging electronic and magnetic materials that may eventually be used to build advanced computing devices.

Lake Shore offers a comprehensive line of cryogenic, magnet-based, load-lock, and high vacuum micro-manipulated probe stations. Lake Shore probe stations enable reliable, unattended measurements at cryogenic temperatures and under the application of magnetic fields up to 30,000 G. These important capabilities are prerequisite to the future development of nanoelectronic and nanomagnetic products.

“We are excited to once again meet with customers at this event, and to learn more about their exploration of nanostructures and nanomaterials,” said Dodrill. “We continue to grow our capabilities and product line in order to better serve these customers and support their continued scientific advancements.”

Attendees can meet with Lake Shore scientists and technical salespeople at booth 223.
