Quantum Design MPMS3 SQUID Magnetometer

MPMS superconducting interference quantum deviceThe Quantum Design MPMS3 is a third-generation Magnetic Property Measurement System (MPMS) which uses a Superconducting Quantum Interference Device (SQUID) to measure the bulk magnetic moment of samples with < 10-8 emu sensitivity. The MPMS3 at Illinois is equipped with a cryogen-free EverCool chiller and a superconducting solenoid magnet, allowing for continuous measurements in the temperature range 1.8K < T < 400K in applied fields 0 < H < 70000 Oe. The system is equipped with and AC susceptibility option which allows for measurements in the frequency range 0.1Hz < f < 1000Hz with and AC amplitude 0.1-10Oe. An oven insert extends the accessible temperature range to temps as high as T < 1000K.

Environment variables:

  • 1.8K < T < 1000K
