Physical property measurement system PPMS by Quantum Design

Versatile system for the measurement of different thermal, magnetic, and transport properties. Currently installed in the general services of our University.

Main specifications:

  • Temperature range: 1.9-400K, with continuous low-temperature control.
  • Field range: from 0.01 Oe (with the ultra-low field option) to 9 T.
  • Measurent options:
    • AC measurement system (ACMS): measurement of AC susceptibility (frequency range: 10-104 Hz, resolution: 2x10-8 emu) and DC magnetization (resolution: 2.5x10-5 emu).
    • AC transport measurements system (ACT): allows the measurement of AC resistivity, 5-wire Hall effect, I-V curves and critical current. Current range: 10 μA-2A, frequency range: 10-104 Hz, sensitivity: 1 nV at 1 kHz.
    • DC resistivity: Simultaneous measurement of up to 3 samples. Current range: 5 nA-5mA, sensitivity: 20 nV.
  • Horizontal rotator: Range: from -10º to 370º, angular step size: 0.0045º.
  • Automated control unit for the temperature, the magnetic field and the measurement system.
