Cascade Microtech Inc. Microtech Welcomes Lake Shore Cryotronics as New Collaboration Partner to Support Broad Customer Requirements
Feb 25 15
Cascade Microtech, Inc. announced its latest MeasureOne solutions partner - Lake Shore Cryotronics. This formal collaboration promises to substantially accelerate the time to first device measurement for a collective customer base where early stage research typically requires testing in extreme cold and magnetic flux. Cascade Microtech and Lake Shore Cryotronics are both leaders in their respective fields, and each is committed to ensuring the best solution to fit the customer's sample size and measurement requirements. This unique MeasureOne partnership enables the sales and service teams from both companies, now cross-trained across each other's product lines, to quickly guide the customer to the best probe station to address their requirements. Validated measurement solutions from both companies will deliver the higher levels of confidence in performance and reliability. While both companies offer cryogenic probe stations, their respective platforms differ in functionality and address different stages of the R&D lifecycle. Lake Shore's probe stations are used in the earliest phases of new semiconductor and magnetic materials R&D. Its platform features align with the limited size and number of samples being measured, as well as the need to probe at the lowest possible temperatures and within high magnetic fields (often over 2 T), where sample stages are generally fixed in position. Cascade Microtech's probe stations are focused on the next phases of device development, where multiple copies of devices have now been constructed. Its platform features align with a larger wafer size and number of devices, as well as a need to replicate measurements across those many devices. Sample stages are moveable in a manual or semi-automated fashion. Moving forward, the collaboration is expected to bolster the product lines of both companies through shared research and technology. Cascade Microtech's radio frequency to Terahertz probing know-how is a natural fit with Lake Shore's focused expertise on measurements near the bottom of the Kelvin scale and in very high magnetic fields. Similarly, Lake Shore's cryogen-free technology and magnetic field expertise may have future applicability in Cascade Microtech's highly-automated cryogenic probe stations.
