Measurement performance of our new 10-inch VSM — read the app note

For researchers requiring higher applied magnetic fields than our 4- and 7-inch 8600 Series VSMs, we now offer a 10-inch electromagnet version (Model 8610). Providing fields as high as 3.6 T (>36 kOe), it is particularly ideal for characterizing permanent magnet materials, such as rare-earth NdFeB magnets, which typically require large fields to saturate and demagnetize the materials.

New app note on sensitive EQE characterization measurements

The landscape of photodetector and solar cell technologies has been rapidly expanded with the emergence of numerous novel material paradigms, including organic semiconductors, perovskites, and two-dimensional (2D) materials. These technology advances directly impact a broad spectrum of applications, from night vision to medical imaging and energy conversion. As materials, device architectures, and manufacturing processes evolve, external quantum efficiency (EQE) is a key metric when comparing devices and competing technologies. Source: Lakeshore…

Probe station app note discusses and compares wafer mounting methods

When using a cryogenic probe station, wafer mounting methodologies are a key element of wafer-level characterization. The mounting materials and approach will influence device temperature, sample exchange time, and even the ability to post process a wafer after characterization. Source: Lakeshore…

New app note on vector VSM measurements available for download

If you’re interested in using a vibrating sample magnetometer to measure the vector components of magnetization and torque curves for magnetically anisotropic materials, then be sure to read our latest app note. It describes the use of a vector VSM (VVSM), specifically our 8600 Series VSM with the vector option (86-VEC). Source: Lakeshore…
