The magnetic properties of bulk samples and thin films can be studied by Vibrating Sample Magnetometry (VSM) or Magneto-optic Kerr effect (MOKE).
Two VSM measuring devices are available in the IRAMIS:
For research on low TC superconductors or more generally on electronic and magnetic matter properties at very low temperature, specific equipments are developped, like a dilution-fridge equipped SQUID magnetometer.

Spin electronics is a new field of research which associates two domains of physics: magnetism and electronics. In the last decade, effects related to spin dependent transport like giant magnetoresistance (GMR) and tunnelling magnetoresistance (TMR) in magnetic heterostructures have stimulated a ... More »
