A lot of R&D today is focused on developing renewable, sustainable sources of energy. This includes the study of promising new organic and thermoelectric materials, as well as technologies that use less power. But there are hurdles to overcome. Solar cell materials, for example, often have low mobilities and to accurately characterize them, you need highly sensitive measurement instrumentation.

Lake Shore provides technology that enables you to accurately measure many of these materials, such as OPV, amorphous silicon, and cadmium telluride solar cell materials. We also offer systems that allow you to:

  • Non-destructively measure transparent conductive oxide and dielectric material responses
  • Explore vibrational resonances of OTFT and OLED materials
  • Measure properties of novel photovoltaic materials
  • Characterize photoelectrochemical behaviors of crystals or metal oxides
  • Determine magneto-caloric properties for new refrigerator technologies
  • Analyze materials for potential use in high-capacity hydrogen storage
  • Characterize promising composites and polymers for new supercapacitor designs
