Cryogenic / Magnetic Probing
Ongoing advances in the physical sciences are creating new generations of semiconductor and magnetic materials in response to the needs for higher speed, greater capacity, reduced power, and increased performance. Early stage research starts by subjecting sample materials to extremely low cryogenic temperatures (within a few degrees of absolute zero) in order to measure fundamental electrical transport properties. Materials with magnetic characteristics will simultaneously be exposed to high fields as these measurements are taken. Thus, materials R&D labs need test and measurement systems with the ability to manifest these extreme sample environments
- Guaranteed system configuration to accommodate a wide variety of extreme environmental conditions
- Measurement solutions pre-validated
- Test continuity from investigation through device characterization and on to process quality control
- Installation and service support
- Technology expertise to address future requirements
- Cascade Microtech cryogenic probe stations supporting device substrates up to 200 mm in diameter with manual, semi-automatic and fully-automated operation for DC and RF measurements into the terahertz range.
- Lake Shore Cryotronics cryogenic probe stations for characterization of small material samples and devices (typically less than 100 mm) down to 2 Kelvin and with magnetic field strengths up to 2.5 Tesla.
