The Lock-in Amplifier explained and reimagined

Measurement of electrical signals, voltage, and current is one of the most important methods used by researchers to characterise electronic materials. But electrical signals are often at very low levels and in the presence of noise — which can be as large as or even larger than the signal itself. …

The technology behind the M81-SSM’s precise signal synchronisation

One of the most unique features of the new modular Lake Shore MeasureReady™ M81-SSM synchronous source measure system is its patent-pending MeasureSync™ signal synchronisation technology. This real-time sampling architecture enables simultaneous source module update and measure module sampling timing across all channels, regardless of signal types for frequencies up to 100 kHz. Because …

Disinfection of high touch/traffic areas

SteriLumen was founded in 2016 with the goal of helping hospitals combat HAIs (healthcare associated infections) with their patented UVC-based disinfection solutions. Each year millions of people contract an infectious disease from a hospital, assisted living, long-term care facility, or other healthcare environment; and nearly 100,000 die. These infections cost …

J.A. Woollam has teamed up with Linkam to bring precise temperature control to its ellipsometry instruments

Thin films can be used to modify the optical characteristics of a surface, its electrical conductivity, its hardness or lubricity, its corrosion resistance, and its chemical inertness. It is important to understand how these properties are affected by temperature. Some materials even go through a phase transition at specific temperatures …
