Lake Shore SEMICON China exhibit to feature cryogenic probing for early-stage semiconductor R&D
Lake Shore at SEMICON China 2015

Lake Shore Cryotronics will be discussing its line of cryogenic, magnet-based probe stations for semiconductor research at next week’s SEMICON China exhibit in Shanghai, China.

Lake Shore’s micro-manipulated probe stations enable reliable, unattended measurements of electrical, electro-optical, DC, RF, and microwave properties of materials and test devices at cryogenic temperatures and under the application of high magnetic field. These capabilities are often vital to advancing the development of semiconductors, nanoscale electronics, spintronic, and MEMS devices.

The fixed-stage, high-vacuum probing platforms are used in the earliest phases of new semiconductor and magnetic materials R&D when it is often necessary to measure smaller and fewer samples at the lowest possible temperatures (below 10 K) and in magnetic field fields (often to over 2 T).

For attendees wanting to see a Lake Shore cryogenic probe station up close, the company will have its tabletop Model TTPX set up within booth 3237 of the March 17–19 exhibit. Representatives from Lake Shore and LinkPhysics Corp., the company’s exclusive representative in China, will be available to discuss probe station configuration options with exhibit visitors.

They will also answer questions about:

  • The 8400 Series Hall measurement system (HMS) with an AC field Hall measurement option for characterizing low-mobility materials, such as many contemporary semiconductor and electronic materials, down to 0.001 cm2/V s.
  • The Model 8425 DC Hall system with integrated cryogenic probe station for non-destructive measurement of wafer-scale materials in a temperature-controlled, high-vacuum environment.
  • Its turnkey terahertz (THz) characterization system that uses THz-frequency energy and an integrated cryostat to measure material responses across a range of frequencies, field strengths, and temperatures.
