We have pleasure inviting you to our Quantum Design MPMS 3 and PPMS DynaCool User Meetings which are being held at Rutherford Appleton Laboratories on Wednesday 22 and Thursday 23 April 2020.
All MPMS 3 and PPMS DynaCool system users are strongly encouraged to attend as this is an ideal opportunity to learn more about the system and meet the application experts from Quantum Design Inc.
Registration is free and will include lunch and refreshments throughout the days. The agendas will be finalised shortly.

About the MPMS 3 Magnetometer
Quantum Design’s MPMS 3 provides users with the sensitivity of a SQUID (Superconducting Quantum Interference Device) magnetometer and the choice of multiple measurement modes, the MPMS 3 offers new levels of performance in magnetic research while including those aspects of past Quantum Design SQUID magnetometers that customers have grown to appreciate and depend on.
Thursday 23 April 2020
PPMS DynaCool User Meeting topics
- DynaCool-Base System
- Electric Transport (ETO)
- Heat Capacity
- PPMS DynaCool Measurement Options – users will be asked on the online registration form which measurement options are relevant to them and we will do our best to include them in this section
About the PPMS DynaCool
The PPMS DynaCool, uses a single two-stage Pulse Tube cooler to cool both the superconducting magnet and the temperature control system, providing a low vibration environment for sample measurements.
Utilising a new approach to cryocooler equipment design, the PPMS DynaCool employs a unique 4He-based gas flow control system that gives you the rapid temperature cycling and accurate temperature control that you have come to expect from a PPMS.
About the Speaker
Randy Dumas is an Applications Scientist at Quantum Design. He received his PhD in 2009 from the University of California, Davis on the topic of reversal mechanisms in magnetic nanostructures. As a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Gothenburg, Sweden he studied next generation magnetic and spin wave based data storage and processing paradigms. Randy also worked with the Swedish startup, NanOsc Instruments AB , developing a user-friendly plug-and-play FMR spectrometer. Randy joined Quantum Design in August 2016 and his specialty lies primarily in magnetic characterisation of both fundamentally interesting and technologically relevant materials
