Lake Shore celebrates 50 years 

Lake Shore celebrates 50 years!

Lake Shore Cryotronics was incorporated in 1968 by brothers John and David Swartz, after John successfully developed a batch of innovative cryogenic temperature sensors for Argonne National Lab. John was an electrical engineering professor at the The Ohio State University at the time, and lived here in Columbus.

To commemorate this milestone year, we are putting together a special publication, “Lake Shore Cryotronics: The First 50 Years.” Please consider sharing your experiences with us.
