micro VSM



  • Temperature range: 10 K to 1025 K
  • Magnetic Field: 0 T - 1.8 T
  • Sensitivity: 5E-9 A m2

A more detailed description can be found in IRM Quarterly Vol. 5, No. 4.

The MicroVSM's (a.k.a. VSM cold and VSM hot) are equipped with either a liquid helium cryostat or flowing helium gas furnace and a stepper motor that rotates the vibration head. This allows you to measure magnetization as a function of three independent variables: field, temperature, and orientation. Moment and remanence measurements as a function of temperature are useful for mineral identification through low temperature transition and curie point determinations, and anisotropy measurements help quantify particle orientations.
