Hall effect systems


FastHall measurement capability contained in a complete characterization platform

The MeasureReady™ M91 FastHall™ measurement controller is a revolutionary, all-in-one Hall analysis instrument that delivers significantly higher levels of precision, speed, and convenience to researchers involved in the study of electronic materials.

And now this novel capability is available as part of the FastHall Station, an integrated, high-precision tabletop measurement system for simplified Hall measurements and less experimental setup.

The FastHall Station includes a Windows® 10 PC, 1 T permanent magnet, high precision sample holder, and all the necessary software and cabling to provide a range of measurement capabilities, including sample resistances up to 1 GΩ and mobility measurements down to 0.01 cm2/V ‍s ­— making it a great choice for labs studying low-mobility materials.

A new approach to Hall measurement

The MeasureReady M91 is a revolutionary, all‑in-one Hall analysis instrument that delivers significantly higher levels of precision, speed, and convenience to researchers involved in the study of electronic materials.

Featuring Lake Shore’s patented* new FastHall measurement technique, the M91 fundamentally changes the way the Hall effect is measured by eliminating the need to switch the polarity of the applied magnetic field during the measurement. This breakthrough results in faster and more accurate measurements, especially when using high-field superconducting magnets or when measuring very low-mobility materials.

*Protected by US patent number 9797965. Other patents pending.
