Characterisation

Magnetic characterisation is mainly carried out using the facilities of the Superconductivity and Magnetism Group and the Ultrasonics Group.

SQUID

Magnetisation measurements are made using various instruments, including the SQUID magnetometer, allowing the application of fields up to 7 T over a temperature range a 1.8-800 K.

VSM

The vibrating sample magnetometer allows measurements of DC magnetisation in applied fields up to 12 T over a temperature range of 1.8-300 K.

emats

Magnetoelastic properties can be explored using non-contact ultrasound analysis, in applied fields up to 0 T over a temperature range of 1.8-300 K.
