Lake Shore Cryotronics will be answering questions about their award-winning 8600 Series VSMs, MagRS magnetic research systems, and other research solutions at next week’s Magnetism and Magnetic Materials (MMM) conference in Minneapolis, MN.

Representatives will specifically be discussing the benefits of the VSMs for characterizing samples over a wide (4.2 to 1273 K) temperature range, as well as how they raise the bar for VSM performance in terms of moment sensitivity (15 nemu RMS noise) and field programming resolution (1 mOe). In addition to 4-inch (2.76 T) and 7-inch (3.22 T) electromagnet versions, Lake Shore now offers a 10-inch model, which provides fields up to 3.6 T (>36 kOe). 

The 8600 Series especially benefits research involving first-order reversal curve (FORC) measurements, flying through complex FORC data collection sequences in a fraction of the time required on previous systems. Included with the system is Real-Time FORC (RTForc™) software, which enables fully automated FORC data acquisition, calculating and displaying FORC distributions in real time, significantly reducing the time required to obtain and analyze FORC data.

In addition, the VSMs are also ideal for characterizing low-moment materials (ultra-thin magnetic multilayers, nanoscale magnetic materials, dilute magnetic semiconductors, and geological samples, for example).

The other products of focus at MMM, the MCS-EMP modular characterization systems, are multi-purpose electromagnet platforms that provide all the components needed for automated, variable field experiments – now and into the future. Each MCS-EMP builds on a 4-inch or 7-inch electromagnet with pole caps, a magnet base, and a pedestal. 

All MCS-EMP systems feature a low-noise 4-quadrant power supply, integrated teslameter for closed-loop field control, and software for full control over magnetic/magneto-transport measurements. Options include a Hall effect measurement module featuring Lake Shore’s proprietary FastHall™ measurement technology; high- and low-temperature options; and high-performance sample holders.
