Quantum Design 14T “Blue” PPMS

PPMS2_0Clark D22

The 14 Tesla physical property measurement system is similar to the 9 Tesla PPMS with a few key additions:

  • Maximum 14 Tesla magnetic field
  • Cryopump for measurements in vacuum (10-5 torr)
  • Thermal Transport measurements (thermal conductivity, Seebeck Effect)
  • Cryogen system which can temporarily be mechanically de-coupled from measurement system to minimize vibration
  • Helium-3 refrigerator for cooling to ~400 mK
  • Custom probe with up to 16 contacts and electrical isolation from chamber

In addition to the base system and Quantum Design measurement options, the system is equipped with a custom measurement system designed for improved van der Pauw resistance and Hall Effect measurements.  This consists of Keithley instruments including a current source and voltage meter which can measure over a wider range of resistance, and a switching system for automatically probing in multiple orientations, as well as a LabView program which allows integrated control of the Keithley instruments and the PPMS.
