The 8600 Series VSMs from Lake Shore Cryotronics [ @LakeShoreCryo ] has been recognised as one of “100 most technologically significant new products in 2017” at an awards ceremony organised by R&D Magazine.
The VSM was re-imagined, focusing on a clean ergonomic design that would simplify a researcher’s interaction with the system. For example, a motorised head brings the sample to a comfortable height for easy, one-handed exchange of the sample rods.
This superior magnetometer, through both performance and convenience, offers very high sensitivity and a super-fast magnetic field ramp rate. Temperature options include a cryostat, high-temperature oven, and single stage variable temperature insert. The combined temperature range of the options is 4.2 to 1273 K, and all three options quickly slide into place and are auto-detected by the system’s software – video demonstration.
8600 Series Features
- 0.25 × 10-7 emu noise floor at 10 s/pt
- 10 ms/pt data acquisition rate
- 10,000 Oe/s field ramp rate
- Rapid, repeatable temperature option exchange
- High stability—±0.05% per day
- Fields to 3.26 T
- Widest available temperature range—4.2 K to 1273 K
The magnet poles are also easily adjusted with a specially designed indexed positioning system that allows the pole gap to be set at one of six repeatable positions, eliminating the need to recalibrate after each change.
