Cryogenic Characterization Facility

The electronic and magnetic properties of materials are often the key properties for their characterization and application. The electronic/magnetic characterization facility operates a Quantum Design SQUID magnetometer with capability of measurements between 1.8 and 800K and magnetic fields up to 5T. It also operates a Quantum Design PPMS and Oxford Instruments Maglab system with capabilities of measuring AC susceptibility, specific heat and electrical transport between 1.5K and 400K in magnetic fields up to 9T. The facility also operates the He liquefier for the Institute.
