Reference customers

"We have been using the MPMS3 since the end of 2014 for measurements on hard magnets and metallic and oxide heterostructures. We specifically appreciate its high sensitivity combined with fast VSM measurements that allow First Order Reversal Curve (FORC) analyses in very short periods of time. The Oven option is particularly important to us for the determination of paramagnetic moments, high-temperature coercive fields and Curie temperatures."
