Ferromagnetic resonance (FMR) is a spectroscopic technique used to probe the magnetization of ferromagnetic materials. Our FRM system sweeps a range of frequencies from 2 to 17GHz and has sensitivity to detect signal in thin films down to 2nm. As an extra/feature, the system has an optional waveguide to detect the Inverse Spin Hall Effect.
The GMI set-up measures magnetic field impedance dependence of thin films, ribbons and microwires from 30 kHz to 6 GHz for magnetic fields up to 120 Oe.
The AGM measures the net magnetic moment of a body upon the application of magnetic field. It works by sensing the force on the body due to a small ac gradient magnetic fiield. Our handmade AGM has a sensitivity of 10-6 emu and applied magnetic field up to 1 Tesla. The device takes magnetic hysteresis loops and first order reversal curves (FORC).
This is a versatile set-up that quantifies the change of polarization of monochromatic coherent light after a reflection on a film's surface. In this way it can work as a Ellipsometer and/or Magnetometer.
The induction magnetometer measure hysteresis cycles and first order reversal curves (FORC) of different materials, reaching a precision to measure micro threads and thin films.
Our setup allows us to measure spintransport properties such as: Spin Seebeck effect, spin magneto resistance, etc. in addition to thermoelectric properties such as: Nernst effect, Anomalus Nernst effect, Ettingshausen effect, etc. We have successfully developed an alternative methodology to measure the Spin Seebeck effect with an unprecedented level of accuracy.
Microwave-assisted magnetic recording has been proposed as one of the prospective recording technologies for forthcoming tera-bit-class magnetic recording. In this magnetization switching technology, the magnetization switches through excitation of its precessional motion by a radio frequency (rf) field.
System Cryogenic measures electrical and magnetic properties of materials from 1.6 K to 400 K and magnetic fields up to 9 Tesla.
Low-frequency vibrating sample magnetometer (VSM) and AC susceptibility with ultra-low field option.
Rotating sample platforms for DC Resistivity & Hall effect / AC Resistivity & Hall effect (1.6 K to 400 K).
Sputtering is a tecnique to deposit thin films onto a subtrate. Respect to other deposition methods, it works fine even with high meltin point materials, furthermore it allows 7 the co-deposition of alloys flims and complex multilayers with a notable degree of automation of the process.
This equipment produces beams of clusters of metallic atoms and deposit them onto a substrate (15x15mm). The size of the clusters is highly tunable: can be as small as a single pair and as big as 105 atoms per cluster (mean diameter 0.5-15nm).
Our HpAFM from Nanomagentic Instruments offers excellent features such as alignment-free design, closed loop flexure scanner, decoupled z scanner, 10 MP video microscope. and flexible operating modes. The recent upgrades (liquid cell and environmental chamber) allows the system to work in liquid and in different environmental conditions.
