Practical Considerations for Reliable Characterisation of Electrical Devices Webinar


OCTOBER 11, 2023 FROM 3:00 PM TO 4:00 PM

Various steps go into accurately characterising new devices. This webinar from our partners, Lake Shore Cryotronics, with AZo, covers the steps you need to ensure high-quality repeatable measurements — particularly when characterising at cryogenic temperatures.

Learn how to:

  • Reduce the impact of noise, self-heating, and other parasitics
  • Simplify connections to the device under test, including ground connections
  • Ensure simultaneous measurements when testing multiple samples
  • Minimise ground loops and crosstalk on instrument cabling

Who should attend:
Anyone interested in characterising electrical materials and devices

By attending this webinar, you will learn:

  • The importance of when to use shielding and guarding on fixturing and cabling
  • How to identify and deal with common sources of environmental noise
  • Single-ended vs. differential measurement techniques
  • How to choose between a voltage or current source depending on the resistance of thedevice measured
  • A new approach to performing DC and lock-in measurements
