Lake Shore Cryotronics will be exhibiting at the International Magnetics Conference, INTERMAG 2012, which will be held in Vancouver from May 7 to May 11, 2012, Booth 11. Dr. Cosmin Radu, Applications Scientist for Lake Shore, will be on hand to answer application-specific questions concerning Lake Shore’s VSM and wide range of magnetic instruments and sensors.
Dr. Radu has a well-balanced perspective of the Lake Shore VSM. As a PhD student at University of New Orleans, his research necessitated extensive use of a VSM, and it was a Lake Shore VSM that was available to him. In addition, Dr. Radu’s expertise and scientific exploration lies in the area of magnetic instrumentation. Between his academic use and experimentation with a VSM, and his more recent years as an application scientist for Lake Shore, Dr. Radu is fully-prepared to answer customer questions concerning VSM features, as well as applications questions.
Dr. Radu says he also strives to use his time at INTERMAG to understand the needs and expectations of those involved in the magnetic industry. “INTERMAG gives me the opportunity to see our customers from a perspective that is different than being on-site. With the lectures and poster sessions, it’s an environment that supports discussions, leading to insights about the needs of our customers.”
Lake Shore VSM systems are used to characterize the DC magnetic properties of materials as a function of magnetic field, temperature, and time. They are available in three different variable gap electromagnet configurations, providing fields up to 3.1 T, with temperature range capabilities from 4.2 K to 1,273 K (-269 °C to 1000 °C). In addition to the VSM systems, information will be available on the features and benefits of Lake Shore’s reliable and robust magnetic instruments and sensors.
