The VSM of the SPCSI.

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:

- One device in SPEC

- One device in SPCSI


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.

Technique (desc. gen.)
Our SQUID (Superconducting QUantum Interference Device) based magnetometer is equipped with 3He-4He dilution refrigerator. The system was developed orignally under the direction of M. Ocio and P. Pari (SPEC Cryogenics group). Currently, this  low temperature SQUID magnetometer (called Mag-dilu, for short) is a part of GMFD (magnetism, frustration and disorder) group.

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 considerable interest. These physical properties can be exploited in a variety of advanced devices such as highly sensitive magnetic sensors (e.g.
