VSM/AGM magnetometer systems and magnetic measurement instruments to be highlighted.

Lake Shore 3900 MicroMag VSM

Lake Shore MicroMag™ VSMs and AGMs can perform first-order-reversal-curve (FORC) measurements to determine distribution of switching fields and interaction fields in magnetic materials.

The systems are very useful for the study of the magnetic properties of thin films; diluted magnetic semiconductors; ferrite and rare-earth permanent magnet materials; and geomagnetic samples.

Lake Shore Cryotronics, a leading innovator in solutions for measurement over a wide range of temperature and magnetic field conditions, will be exhibiting magnetic measurement systems and instruments at next week’s IEEE International Magnetics Conference (Intermag) exhibit in Beijing, China.

Lake Shore will be available at booth 2 along with LinkPhysics Corp., the company’s dealer representative in China, to answer application-related questions about their industry-leading vibrating sample magnetometer (VSM) and alternating gradient magnetometer (AGM) systems. Used for characterizing DC magnetic properties of materials as a function of magnetic field, temperature and time, Lake Shore VSM/AGMs offer high sensitivity, accuracy and speed, as well as a wide temperature range (4.2 K to 1273 K) and variable fields to >3 T.

The systems are very useful for the study of the magnetic properties of thin films; nanomagnetic composites, dots, wires and arrays; magnetic multi-layers and hetero-structures for spintronics (GMR, TMR); diluted magnetic semiconductors; ferrite and rare-earth permanent magnet materials; and geomagnetic samples. Because of their sensitivity and speed, Lake Shore MicroMag™ VSMs and AGMs are particularly good at performing first-order-reversal-curves (FORC) measurements, which are indispensable in determining the distribution of switching fields and interaction fields in magnetic materials.

For users interested in characterizing magnetocaloric effect (MCE) behavior, Lake Shore now offers an MCE analysis tool for its 7400 Series VSM line. Available in beta version, this user-friendly program imports magnetization curve data from the VSM's data acquisition software and then, using that data, calculates magnetic entropy change and refrigerant capacity for the type of material being analyzed.

Also at Intermag, Lake Shore will be discussing their:

  • Complete line of Hall effect gaussmeters, fluxmeters, Hall probes, and Helmholtz and search coils.
  • Terahertz (THz) materials characterization system for measuring spectroscopic responses of magnetic and electronic materials across a range of frequencies, temperatures and field strengths.
  • Cryogenic probe stations featuring integrated in-plane and out-of-plane magnets for DC, RF and microwave probing of materials as a function of temperature and field.
  • Hall effect measurement systems that enable Hall effect and magnetotransport measurements as a function of temperature and field.
