Kevin Carmichael, of Lake Shore Cryotronics, has authored a paper outlining common errors that can be made during precision electronic measurements. Whether you are new to electronic device measurements or a pro, you’ll want to avoid these pitfalls to prevent:

About the Author
Kevin Carmichael is Senior Marketing Product Manager for Lake Shore Cryotronics responsible for material characterisation systems and instrumentation. This includes the company’s new line of high-performance, simple-to-use MeasureReady™ I/V sources for engineers and scientists requiring a very precise, low-noise source of current or voltage in the lab.
Data is currently available online for sensors shipped since the beginning of 2016, so if an existing CD is lost or damaged, the calibration data can be quickly downloaded providing you have the serial number of the relevant sensor on hand. Alternatively, contact Lake Shore Service for archived curves.
Lake Shore space-qualified sensors were on the hugely successful Cassini Huygens mission to Saturn that ended earlier this month.
Nearly twenty years of gathering temperature information in an extreme environment is a good advert for their sensors, and Elliot Scientific often supplies them to the aerospace industry and space scientists in the UK and Ireland.

QuAMP – the International Conference on Quantum, Atomic, Molecular and Plasma Physics – is the première UK conference devoted to these areas of physics. Elliot Scientific is exhibiting on Tuesday and Wednesday (September 5th and 6th) next week. The event is being held at the Hilton Glasgow Grosvenor Hotel.
QuAMP covers quantum information and technology, quantum optics, ultra-cold matter, the interaction of light with molecules and plasmas. The format of the biennial conference comprises plenary talks by invited speakers as well as some contributed talks and posters.
Lake Shore have announced the new Model 155 MeasureReady™ precision I/V source. Ideal for demanding scientific applications requiring a precise low-noise supply of current or voltage, for example electronic material characterisation, the Model 155 will be shipping later this year.
Supplying 1 W maximum from DC to 100 kHz over a broad output range, these power supplies deliver a solid foundation for I/V curve, Hall effect, and other fundamental measurements.
The clutter-free touch display with a unique TiltView™ screen presents a natural and engaging user interface. No confusing buttons or long learning curves make the Model 155 as easy to use as a smartphone. With similar connectivity – Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, USB, plus LAN – it offers convenient remote operation via LabVIEW™, a custom PC interface, or mobile app.
INTERMAG is the IEEE’s premier conference on applied magnetics and information storage technologies, covering diverse topics such as magnets and magnetic materials, microscopy and the life sciences, motors, transformers and more.
An exhibition runs alongside, and representatives from Elliot Scientific will be assisting our friends from Lake Shore Cryotronics on their stand from Tuesday the 25th to Thursday the 27th. We look forward to seeing you there.
The Elliot Scientific August newsletter is now available. In this issue we announce several new products. We begin with Lake Shore’s new 240 Series distributed cryogenic temperature monitoring system for “Big physics” projects, Micro Laser Systems further expansion of their laser collimator portfolio, an extended range Z-axis nanopositioner for microscopists from Mad City Labs, and EXFO‘s latest benchtop optical power meter. Plus details of events coming in September.
