Brief description of equipment
The High Field Measurement System (Cryogenic Ltd. UK) is a cryogenic free system working with the sample down to 1.5 K and under applied fields of maximum 9 T and with a sensitivity of 10-5 emu (VSM) and 10-7 emu (AC).
Other facilities: additional current source for low field measurements, 4 points measurement for resistivity for up to 4 samples (classic) or 3 samples (Van der Pauw), furnace for high temperature magnetometry up to 600 K.
