Cryogenic temperature sensors and instruments to be focus of Lake Shore ASC exhibit
Lake Shore at ASC in Charlotte

Lake Shore Cryotronics will be exhibiting its range of cryogenic measurement solutions for superconductivity research during the Aug. 10 – 15 Applied Superconductivity Conference (ASC) in Charlotte, N.C.

At ASC Booth 57, attendees can learn how Lake Shore temperature sensors facilitate specific superconducting experiments. The company’s popular Cernox™ thin-film resistance sensors offer particular advantages to researchers requiring good sensitivity over a wide range. They also feature low magnetoresistance and are best for applications with magnetic fields up to 30 T. Cernox sensors are used for monitoring the temperature of superconducting magnets in supercolliders, in medical MRI applications, and in lab Dewars, cryocoolers, and cryostats. The company also offers a wide selection of silicon diode, germanium, and ruthenium oxide sensors for specialized superconductivity experiments.

The soon-to-be-released Model 372 AC resistance bridge features a dedicated input for continuous low temperature control and measurement to below 10 mK, and the Model 224 temperature monitor offers high sensitivity and 12 independently configurable inputs for measurement down to 300 mK.

Lake Shore’s line of industry-leading temperature sensors includes Cernox™ thin-film RTD sensors, silicon diodes, germanium, and ruthenium oxide sensors, platinum RTDs, and other specialty sensors for use in environments from less than 20 mK to over 1,500 K.

Among the variety of materials characterization systems Lake Shore offers are:

  • A new Model 8501 terahertz spectroscopic system with integrated cryostat for non-contact, high-resolution characterization of superconducting ultra-thin films and metamaterials over a range of frequencies, cryogenic temperatures, and magnetic fields.
  • Cryogenic probe stations for studying materials and early-stage devices in a precisely controlled environment, at temperatures as low as 1.6 K (Model CPX).
  • Hall measurement systems with closed-cycle refrigerator options for performing Hall effect measurements as a function of temperature.
  • Magnetometer systems (VSM/AGMs) for characterizing magnetic properties over a range of temperatures, as low as 4.2 K with the 7400 Series VSM.
