Lake Shore Cryotronics will be at next week’s APS March Meeting in Las Vegas, showcasing solutions for experimental physicists, including a new all-in-one system intended for 77 K to 500 K material and device research.
This fully integrated cryogenic characterization system, named CryoComplete™, provides everything one needs to start taking temperature-dependent, low-level measurements out of the box. It contains:
- A MeasureReady™ M81-SSM synchronous source measure system optimized for low-level DC measurements, including a BCS-10 balanced DC/AC current source module and a VM-10 differential DC, AC, and lock-in capable voltmeter module
- An Environment by Janis VPF-100 sample-in-vacuum LN2 cryostat with pre-wired sample mount and cabling
- A Model 335 temperature controller with precision-calibrated silicon diode temperature sensor
- A PC with MeasureLINK™ test control and data charting software for automating entire experiments
In APS Booth 701, Lake Shore will show how the new system’s M81-SSM components can be used to stimulate and measure small detector photocurrents of a diode mounted in the cryostat when illuminated by a laser source.
Lake Shore’s Jeffrey Lindemuth will present on the M81-SSM’s advanced noise-filtering capabilities during the scientific session in his talk titled “Complex Filter Configuration for Lock-in Amplifiers.” On Thursday at 12:30 p.m. in Room 315, he will discuss how the system’s filtering technique can detect low-level AC signals in the presence of high levels of noise and interfering signals. Attendees can expect to learn about the advantages of using the M81-SSM in those scenarios.
In the Lake Shore booth, company representatives will also be showcasing their:
- M81-SSM set up to show on-wafer measurements made in Lake Shore’s tabletop TTPX cryogenic probe station; in this setup, the M81-SSM modules are attached directly to the station, eliminating the need for long signal wiring to a device under test while increasing measurement sensitivity
- FastHall™ Station, a tabletop system for rapid Hall effect analysis — especially when studying low-mobility materials — as provided by the included M91 FastHall measurement controller; in addition, Lake Shore will be demonstrating a new way to easily integrate the FastHall controller into a Quantum Design PPMS® for high-resistance Hall measurements
- Recirculating gas cooler (RGC) system, which offers all the flexibility and convenience of a continuous-flow cryostat without a need for liquid helium; on display will be the ST-500 optical cryostat, which is often used for sample cooling with the RGC
Lake Shore will also be discussing its full selection of:
- Cryogenic probe stations for performing on-wafer DC, RF, or high-frequency measurements at temperatures as low 1.6 K and in fields to as high as 5 T under vacuum
- Cryogenic measurement and control products, including cryogenic sensors, monitors, and controllers
- Cryostats, cryocoolers, and other lab cryogenic equipment
- Vibrating sample magnetometers (VSMs) for characterizing magnetic materials
- Magnetic test and measurement instruments and sensors
