Squeeze More Out of Your Measurement with Modern Lock-in Amplifier Technology

Presented by: Claudius Riek, Zurich Instruments

Measurement time is precious, so it is critical to capture as much information as possible in one experimental run. The goal of this talk is to provide you with insights into how modern lock-in amplifier technology can help you to make the most out of each experiment you perform.

Claudius Riek will explain how to do so independently of whether you need to record one parameter or multiple variables simultaneously. He will start by summarizing how to implement lock-in detection to obtain maximum SNR. He will then discuss the advantages of direct AM/FM demodulation, as opposed to tandem demodulation, to recover more information from a measurement. To conclude, Riek will illustrate how a boxcar averager can capture even more information from a periodic non-sinusoidal signal within a given measurement time window.
