Preconfigured Probe Station for Common
Lake Shore Cryotronics is now offering a fully configured probe
station for scientists in need of a basic cryogenic probe station at
an affordable price.
A fully specified, prepackaged
platform that uses components
from Lake Shore's existing TTPX
probe station line, the Model
PS-100 tabletop cryogenic probe
station features four-point triaxial probing for applications
requiring sensitive, high-impedance DC measurements.
"With the PS-100, we're offering a straightforward cryogenic
probing solution without the
complexity of choosing from
multiple configuration options,"
said Scott Yano, VP of Product
Development at Lake Shore. "We have chosen the four-arm triaxial
configuration because it is the most commonly requested configuration and serves many different applications."
Offering versatile cryogenic testing, the PS-100 is well suited for
labs with limited funding or who are just starting out with materials
testing. "It's also the choice for researchers who need a solution
quickly. Typically, it can be in your lab worldwide in less than a
month from the time it's ordered," Yano said. "Setup is easy, too.
Just add cryogen and a vacuum pump."
The PS-100 features the same performance specifications as Lake
Shore's existing TTPX probe station with high-stability operation
over the full TTPX temperature range. The probe station offers:
* High-precision, micro-manipulated stages for accurate probe
* Precise temperature control with the included Lake Shore
Model 336 controller.
* Complete thermal anchoring and radiation shielding to keep
heat from reaching the sample and adversely affecting sample
* Cryogenic operation with either liquid nitrogen or liquid helium.
A probe starter kit that has six probes including two of Lake
Shore's patented continuously variable temperature (CVT) probes.
The PS-100 also can be upgraded with standard TTPX options in the
field, including low- or high-temperature options, support for larger
sample sizes, vibration isolation and backside optical access.
"As your research needs change, so can your probe station, which
makes it a good choice for users who would like longer term flexibility," Yano said.
Lake Shore probe stations support a number of research applications for non-destructive testing of devices on full and partial
wafers at varying temperatures, whether for measuring magnetotransport, electrical, electro-optical, parametric, high Z, DC, RF or
microwave properties. Many researchers use the probing technology for electrical characterization of microelectronic devices and
studying semiconductor characterization and transport, as well as
for MEMS, spintronics, and nanoparticle R&D. Plus, a number of
chemistry-based researchers are using probe stations for the study
of organic electronics and the structural control of graphene.
