Lake Shore Cryotronics, Inc. to Feature AC Hall Effect Measurement System and Probe Stations at Electronic Materials Conference 2012

Published: Jun 15, 2012

Westerville, Ohio – Lake Shore Cryotronics, Inc., a manufacturer of scientific sensors, instruments, and systems for precise measurement and control, announces that it will be exhibiting at the Electronic Materials Conference (EMC), which will be held June 20-22, 2012, at The Penn Stater, Pennsylvania State University, State College, PA. Lake Shore will be featuring its new 8400 Series Hall effect measurement system (HMS), along with its range of cryogenic and cryogen-free probe stations.

Dr. Jeffrey R. Lindemuth, Lake Shore’s senior scientist, will be presenting on a Hall effect measurement method that uses an AC magnetic field rather than the more traditional method that uses DC fields. The AC Hall effect measurement provides better solutions for researchers exploring the electronic and magneto-transport properties of low mobility electronic materials. His presentation, entitled Sample Temperature Drift Effects in AC Field Hall Measurements (Paper Y3) is scheduled for June 21, at 2:10 P.M., in room 108.

Dr. Lindemuth will discuss how Lake Shore’s 8400 Series Hall effect measurement system, which features an optional AC field measurement capability, can measure Hall mobilities down to 10-3 centimeters squared per volt per second (cm2/(V s)). DC field techniques are generally limited to measuring mobilities of about 1 cm2/V s in DC magnetic fields produced by conventional laboratory electromagnets. Applications for the system include measurement of solar cell materials, organic electronics, transparent conducting oxides, III-V and III-VI semiconductors, magnetoresistors, as well as others.

Lake Shore’s product experts will be at the show to answer questions and to discuss the features and benefits of Lake Shore’s probe stations, which include three cryogen-free cryogenic probe stations and six cryogenic models. A variety of applications are made possible through choices of magnetic field, number of probe arms temperature range, and sample size.

The recently introduced Model CRX-VF and Model CRX-EM-HF cryogen-free probe stations add vertical and horizontal field to Lake Shore’s growing family of closed cycle refrigerator (CCR) probe stations.
