Durham University is equipped with a Quantum Design Magnetic Property Measurement System 3 (MPMS3). This instrument enables highly sensitive magnetic measurements under variable conditions. The instrument is based on detection via a superconducting quantum interference device (SQUID) and a 7 T superconducting magnet, with a sample temperature range of 2 K to 400 K. The system uses an Evercool refrigeration system, which liquefies helium, minimising the usage of this resource.
Our system is available to Durham researchers and also to external users. Please contact Prof Tom Lancaster (firstname.lastname@example.org) to discuss your requirements.
