See a sneak peek of unique, new helium-saving solution at MRS Fall exhibit

Lake Shore Exhibiting at MRS Fall 2023Lake Shore Cryotronics will be offering an early look at a new fully automated recirculating gas cooler system at next week’s MRS Fall exhibit in Boston.

Ideal for any material researcher struggling with liquid helium (LHe) shortages and prices, the Infinite Helium system enables a continuous flow cryostat to operate cryogen-free, with base temperatures reaching as low as 2 K. It also offers single-button cool-down operation – no manual valve adjustments are required – while additional intelligent features reduce user error to ensure consistent and optimal performance.

In addition, samples can be exchanged easily without warming up the system, allowing for fast turnaround times, and it offers a continuous run time of up to 6 months or longer without requiring servicing. 

Designed with adaptability in mind, Infinite Helium seamlessly integrates with various continuous flow cryostats. It will be shown at MRS Fall paired with Lake Shore’s ST‑500 cryostat for low-vibration microscopy applications, but it also works with the ST‑400 cryostat for UHV/beamline applications, ST‑FTIR or STVP‑NMR cryostats, and the company’s other continuous flow cryostats. Also available: an option for reducing vibrations in a measurement to ultra-low levels (to 1 nm vibration at >10 Hz) when the system is used with the ST-500.

Also at MRS Fall, Lake Shore will be demoing their:

  • MeasureReady™ M81-SSM synchronous source measure system, which provides highly synchronized DC, 100 kHz AC, and mixed DC + AC sourcing and measuring for researchers exploring the electrical properties of early-stage materials (the system will be set up to show actual voltage, current, and resistance measurements being performed)
  • Tabletop TTPX cryogenic probe station capable of making a wide variety of material measurements as a function of variable temperature; Lake Shore offers a range of stations for performing on-wafer DC, RF, or high-frequency measurements at temperatures as low as 1.6 K and in fields to as high as 5 T under vacuum
  • Tabletop FastHall™ Station for rapid, convenient Hall analysis using patented FastHall measurement technology as provided by the included M91 FastHall measurement controller; in addition, Lake Shore will have on display a new guarded insert for easily integrating the M91 controller into a Quantum Design PPMS® for high-resistance Hall measurements
