Cryogenic Temperature Sensors and Instruments to be Focus of Lake Shore ASC Exhibit

Lake Shore's Cernox cryogenic temperature sensors offer good sensitivity over a wide range and low magnetoresistance.
The sensors provide precise, reliable measurements, especially when used with Lake Shore cryogenic temperature controllers and monitors in applications including testing of superconducting magnets and monitoring of helium bath temperatures.

Lake Shore Cryotronics, a leading innovator in solutions for measurement over a wide range of temperature and magnetic field conditions, announced today that it will be exhibiting its range of cryogenic measurement solutions for superconductivity research during the Aug. 10–15 Applied Superconductivity Conference (ASC) in Charlotte, N.C.
At ASC Booth 57, attendees can learn how Lake Shore temperature sensors facilitate specific superconducting experiments. The company’s popular Cernox™ thin-film resistance sensors offer particular advantages to researchers requiring good sensitivity over a wide range. They also feature low magnetoresistance and are best for applications with magnetic fields up to 30 T. Cernox sensors are used for monitoring the temperature of superconducting magnets in super colliders, in medical MRI applications, and in lab Dewars, cryocoolers and cryostats. The company also offers a wide selection of silicon diode, germanium and ruthenium oxide sensors for specialized superconductivity experiments.
The sensors provide precise, reliable measurements especially when used with Lake Shore cryogenic temperature controllers and monitors in applications including testing of superconducting magnets and monitoring of helium bath temperatures. The company’s line of instruments includes its Model 336 cryogenic controller and the 12-channel Model 224 monitor.
At ASC, Lake Shore will also discuss its: 
  •     Probe stations for non-destructive, temperature-dependent measurement of superconducting materials, films, and tapes while under the application of fields up to 3 T, as well as for studying transport mechanisms in superconducting devices and observing material changes at critical superconducting transition temperatures.
  •     Gaussmeters, Hall probes and Hall sensors, which offer unsurpassed precision and reliability for use in the most sensitive research and QC applications, including the mapping of MRI magnets and stray fields.
  •     Precision VSM/AGM magnetometer systems for characterizing the magnetic properties of superconducting materials at 4.2 K temperatures and 3.1 T fields.
  •     New Model 8501 terahertz spectroscopic system with integrated cryostat for non-contact, high-resolution characterization of superconducting ultra-thin films and metamaterials over a range of frequencies, cryogenic temperatures and magnetic fields.
  •     Hall effect measurement systems that allow for measurements at temperatures as low as 2 K and at fields as high as 9 T.
