Low temperature characterisation
For routine low temperature measurements between 2-350 K we operate an Evercool II Physical Property Measurement System (PPMS) from Quantum design (below right). Funded by our ERC consolidator grant. This system includes a 9T magnet with DC Magnetism, AC Susceptibility, Resistivity, Vibrating Sample Magnetometer etc. We have extended its electronics for Hall effect and device measurements (such as MEMS / NEMS) at low temperatures.
This is extended by access to a shared departmental dilution refrigerator (BlueFors 7mK, below; close up of sample stage below right) capabilities for low temperature characterisation of our superconducting diamond. As well as these standard options we have multiple custom measurement options built in house.
