Quantum Design MPMS XL-5 SQUID Magnetometer
The Quantum Design MPMS XL-5 SQUID Magnetometer is a very sensitive tool to measure the magnetization of materials, as function of temperature and magnetic field.
- Features & Info sheet:
High sensitivity: MPMS sample magnetometers employ SQUID (Superconducting Quantum Interference Device) technology, to achieve superior measurement sensitivity and dynamic range.
Flexible operation: the MPMS incorporates all the hardware and software needed for precise magnetic measurements in a fully integrated, modular system.
DC Magnetization: this is the magnetic moment per unit volume (M) of a sample. If the sample doesn't have a permanent magnetic moment, a field is applied to induce one.
AC Susceptibility: values measured include real and imaginary susceptibility, which are used to determine frequency dependence and relaxation effects.
Automated measurements: Instruction files of up to 1500 steps can be created for immediate use, or stored on disk for later access.

The insrument requires liquid helium for operation, thus a very tight schedule of use is practiced when the dewar is cold. Extereme care is required with sample mounting.
