Lake Shore Cryotronics will be at next week’s International Microwave Symposium (IMS) in Washington, D.C. discussing cryogenic probe stations, cryostats, and various other high-performance products for high-frequency research.

On display in Booth #353 will be the TTPX probe station configured with GSG-style 40-GHz probes for on-wafer measurements of devices on full and partial wafers up to 51 mm (2 in) in diameter. This setup is designed to ensure optimal RF/microwave measurement performance at cryogenic temperatures.

Lake Shore offers stations for probing at temperatures as low as 1.6 K and probes for RF probing up to 1 GHz and GSG RF/microwave probing up 67 GHz. Also available: cryogen-free probe stations, versions with integrated magnetic field, as well as load-lock assembly, high-temperature (675 K), high-vacuum (10-7 Torr), 360° sample stage rotation, and backside optical access options.

Lake Shore’s probe stations benefit device research requiring fundamental I-V, C-V, and other electrical measurements of test structures, including those for MMIC, LNA, or MEMS designs. Applications include setups where mixed-mode/differential S-parameters need to be characterized at cryogenic temperatures for quantum computing technology research or where users need to measure structures as a step to developing next-generation millimeter-wave detector, radio astronomy, and power sensing technologies.

Also at IMS, the company will discuss its Environment by Janis cryostats optimized for microwave/RF/quantum computing research. Models are available with low-loss RF and microwave coaxial cabling and feedthroughs, enabling easy integration into high-frequency applications, as well as in ultra-high-vacuum and low-vibration versions with optical access options. Both wet (LHe and LN2) and dry (cryogen-free) cryostats for these applications can be ordered.

Plus, Lake Shore will be answering questions about:
