Practical Considerations for Reliable Characterization of Electrical Devices

Various steps go into accurately characterizing new devices, especially when measuring electrical signals, voltage, and current.

This webinar will cover these steps, discussing what’s necessary to ensure high-quality and repeatable measurements — particularly when characterizing at cryogenic temperatures.

Lake Shore's Jason Chonko, the webinar's presenter, will discuss ways 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
  • Minimize ground loops and crosstalk on instrument cabling

Single-ended vs differential measurement

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 the device measured
  • A new approach to performing DC and lock-in measurements
