Abstract:

A variable temperature superconducting susceptometer has been acquired for the measurement of magnetic moments and susceptibilities of small samples over a wide range of temperature and magnetic field. This instrument is equipped for measurement over the temperature range from 1.8K up to 400K, and in magnetic fields up to 6 Tesla. The system operates under full computer control of all of its parameters utilizing a software package which runs on a Hewlett Packard Touch Screen II Computer. The instrument will be shortly retrofitted with a second SQUID Probe configured to permit measurements of components of the magnetization and susceptibility transverse to the axis of the instrument as well as to rotate samples about the axis of the superconducting solenoid.
