System Information

General Description

  • General purpose field/temperature platform
  • Hosts wide variety of automated physical properties measurements, or custom user probes
  • Cryogen-free and fully automated


  • Temperature: 1.8 – 400 K
  • Magnetic field: +/- 9 tesla (90 kOe)
  • 25mm diameter sample space
  • Electrical transport: magnetoresistance, Hall effect, I-V curves; external gating possible (<micro-ohm up to 5 giga-ohm)
  • Magnetometry: DC magnetic moment using VSM (10-6 emu up to 100 emu)
  • Sample rotation
  • Ferromagnetic resonance (FMR) up to 18 GHz
  • Thermal conductivity, Seebeck coefficient
  • Custom probes, external electronics


Other measurements can be added:

  • Torque magnetometry
  • Heat capacity
  • Dilatometry
  • Fiber optic for photoconductivity
  • Dielectric constant
  • 50 mK dilution refrigerator
