Cryogenic 5 Tesla Cryogen Free Mini-VSM with Integrated VTI and high temperature facility to 700 K

Model: 
5 Tesla Cryogen Free Mini-VSM with Integrated VTI and high temperature facility to 700 K
Make: 

The Mini Cryogen Free Measurement system (CFM) is a Physical Property Measurement System (PPMS) with several measurement options on the same system. The system consists of the Base System with basic 5 Tesla mini CFM , integrated Variable Temperature Insert (VTI) and a coldhead. The present system is dedicated to magnetic and electrical measurement options corresponding to

  1. Vibrating sample magnetometer (VSM) and AC susceptometer,
  2. DC Resistivity and Hall effect and,
  3.  High temperature option for magnetic measurements to 700 K.

The system is designed for magnetic characterization up to 5 Tesla and variable temperature from 1.6 K to 300 K without the need for liquid cryogens. The equipment is provided with a Very Low Field Power Supply in order to achieve accurate magnetic fields from zero to 5 Tesla. A water chiller to suit the F50H compressor on the system is included to minimise cooling water usage. The Mini CFM system combines the versatility of multiple measurement options, economy on space because of small size and low operational costs since expensive liquid Helium is not required for measurement s at low temperature.
