Jeff Lindermuth

Senior Application Scientist

There are a lot of changes coming for materials research in the near future. The distinction between electronic materials and biological materials is becoming less and less evident, and as researchers blend the two together they will need new, more advanced measurement techniques. I expect to see this happening in all branches of the industry, from renewable energy to communications and computing, and I’m excited to see what new possibilities that presents for Lake Shore.

Dr. Jeffrey Lindemuth is a Senior Scientist with Lake Shore. He received his BSc in Physics from Penn State University and his PhD in High Energy Physics from the College of William and Mary in 1982, where his research concentrated on the study of weak and strong interactions through the measurements of exotic atom x-rays. Before Lake Shore, Dr. Lindemuth was with EG&G Princeton Applied Research, concentrating on computer-aided measurements and data analysis for electrochemistry, optical spectroscopy, fiber optics, magnetic materials, and high-speed electronics. He later became Director of R&D for the company. Since joining Lake Shore in 1993, his focus has been in the development of magnetic measurement systems, including VSMs and AC susceptibility measurements as well as Hall systems and data analysis. In addition, Dr. Lindemuth performs application training, working closely with customers to help them better understand the measurements obtained from their VSM and Hall systems. He is widely recognized as an expert in instrumentation and methods for Hall measurements, particularly in semiconductor materials. For more about Dr. Lindemuth’s work, read this Q&A from our blog.
