Vibrating Sample Magnetometer Training

The vibrating sample magnetometer (VSM) is a tool to characterize various types of magnetic materials such as dia/ para/ferro/ferri/antiferro/superpara-mag- netic ground states. It is equipped with an electromagnet and a pick-up coil with a sensitivity of 10-6 emu. Samples can be in solid, thin film, powder, or liquid form. Special holders are available for in-plane and out-of-plane magnetization geometry for anisotropic magnetic materials. The maximum applied field that depends on the pole gap is +/- 1.5 Tesla. This course introduces the VSM and measurement setup. Participants will learn how to prepare samples for specific magnetic property measurement, set up the tool and sequence for the specific magnetic property measurement, and load and unload samples. Data analysis will also be covered. PARTICIPANT PROFILE This course is intended for students and research professionals from KAUST who want to use VSM to characterize the magnetization of samples.

SQUID-VSM is a highly sensitive (10-8 emu) magnetometer to study the mag- netic properties of various types of materials, such as para-, ferro-, ferri-, antifer- ro-, and superpara- magnetic, as a function of two main variables; (i) magnetic field, +/- 7 T and (ii) temperature, 2K – 400K – 1000K. This course introduces the SQUID-VSM. Participants will learn how to set up samples for specific magnetic property measurement, and how to set up the tool and sequence for the specific magnetic property measurement. Loading and unloading samples and data analysis will also be covered. PARTICIPANT PROFILE This course is intended for students and research professionals from KAUST who want to use SQUID-VSM to characterize the magnetic properties of sam- ples.
