Lake Shore has made improvements to the THz spectrometer for increased stability of the platform. The first step in the Phase II effort will be to upgrade the alpha system currently installed in the
“This is a great opportunity to continue testing the system on a variety of materials and build the application base for the system,” Yano said. “The goal of these measurement efforts is to develop material property extraction algorithms that can be incorporated into the THz system software so customers can easily process their measurement data. The funding provided by this grant will allow us to accelerate development.”
Development efforts at Lake Shore are being led by Dr.
The 8500 Series THz system for material characterization offers the materials development community a complete solution for exploring THz-frequency electronic, magnetic, and chemical properties of materials in cryogenic and magnetic field environments. It uses non-destructive, non-contact THz energy for measurement and features a coherent, variable frequency continuous wave (CW) THz spectrometer and specially designed THz emitter and detector components for high spectral resolution measurements in these extreme environments.
The system includes a cryostat, magnet, temperature controller, and all of the THz hardware and software needed for a complete experimental platform. Plus, using it requires no special optics knowledge. All of the precise alignment and calibrations of the spectrometer components have already been done, so researchers can quickly insert samples in its sample holder, install the sample insert in the cooled cryostat, and begin taking measurements.
