Henry Royce Institute Case Study on our Squid Magnetomer

Superconducting Quantum Interference Device (SQUID) magnetometers are vital instruments in the study of magnetic materials. The high sensitivity of the equipment means that they allow for a much more accurate determination of magnetic properties on materials where the magnetism is extremely weak.

The Henry Royce Institute funded SQUID MPMS 3 is regularly being used by the University of Sheffield’s Functional Magnetics Group and they have kindly written a case study all about it..
