Lake Shore Cryotronics, Inc. to Feature Hall Effect Measurement System and Probe Station Line at SEMICON West 2012

Published: Jul 03, 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 featuring its range of cryogenic and cryogenic-free probe stations and 8400 Series Hall Effect Measurement System at SEMICON West 2012, July 10-12, at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, California, in Booth #6458. On display at the booth will be the Model TTPX cryogenic probe station, as well as information on Lake Shore’s new 8400 Series Hall Effect measurement system.

Lake Shore has ten distinct probe station models, including four cryogen-free probe stations and six cryogenic models. Featured at the booth will be Lake Shore’s lower cost Model TTPX cryogenic micro-manipulated probe station, used for non-destructive testing of devices on full and partial wafers up to 51 mm (2 in) in diameter. The TTPX measures electrical, electro-optical, parametric, high Z, DC, RF, and microwave properties of materials and test devices. A wide selection of probes, cables, sample holders, and options makes it possible to configure the TTPX to meet specific measurement applications. Other models are available to meet a variety of parameters, including magnet field, maximum number of probe arms, standard temperature range, high and low temperature options, maximum sample size, vacuum, and sample stage rotation. Lake Shore will also be highlighting the new lower-cost cryogen-free probe station, the Model CRX-6.5K. Additionally, Lake Shore will be spotlighting the new 8400 Series Hall effect measurement system (HMS). The AC Hall effect measurement provides better solutions for researchers exploring the electronic and magneto-transport properties of low mobility electronic materials. 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 second (cm2/V?s). 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 features and benefits of Lake Shore’s probe stations and Hall effect measurement systems.
