Magnetic Property Measurement System

Quantum Designs MPMS2 cryogenic susceptometer


A more detailed description can be found in IRM Quarterly v. 8, n. 4, Winter 1998-99.

The MPMS is used primarily for magnetic mineral identification based on low-temperature crystallographic transitions (e.g. the Verwey transition in magnetite at about 110 K), and for characterizing particle size distributions, especially for samples containing ultrafine-grained superparamagnetic grains.

For additional information reguarding sample preparation see IRM Quarterly v.6 No.4.
