Lake Shore Cryotronics Inc. will attend the IEEE MTT International Microwave Symposium 2013 (IMS) in Seattle, WA June 2-7, where it will showcase its family of cryogenic and cryogen-free probe stations for characterizing the performance of early stage devices and materials. IMS is an international gathering of technologists involved in all aspects of microwave theory and practice, particularly those in RF, microwave, millimeter wave, and terahertz (THz) frequencies.

Lake Shore will also present its other materials testing systems, including its recently-announced THz materials characterization system. The THz system enables researchers to explore phenomena in emerging electronic and magnetic materials over a range of temperature and fields using non-contact THz frequency energy. Alpha units of the system are currently in testing at several key research facilities in the U.S., and early findings support the growing interest from scientists in applying THz to gain valuable insights into these types of materials.

Lake Shore launched its terahertz system for materials characterization in March 2013.
