New VSM series from Lake Shore: Introducing the 8600
The new 8600 Series VSM from Lake Shore Cryotronics raises the bar for magnetometer performance and convenience by combining high sensitivity, rapid measurement speeds, and ease of operation for faster and more accurate measurements.
The entire 8600 Series system has been re-imagined with a focus on a clean, ergonomic design that simplifies the researcher’s interaction with the system. For example, a motorised head brings the sample to a comfortable height for easy, one-handed exchange of the sample rods.
Temperature options include a cryostat, high-temperature oven, and single stage variable temperature insert. The combined temperature range of the options is 4.2 to 1273 K, and all three options quickly slide into place and are auto-detected by the system’s software – video demonstration.
8600 Series Features
- 0.33 × 10-7 emu noise floor at 10 s/pt
- 10 ms/pt data acquisition rate
- 5000 Oe/s field ramp rate
- Rapid, repeatable temperature option exchange
- High stability—±0.05% per day
- Fields to 3.26 T
- Widest available temperature range—4.2 K to 1273 K
The magnet poles are also easily adjusted with a specially designed indexed positioning system that allows the pole gap to be set at one of six repeatable positions, eliminating the need to recalibrate after each change.
The new 8600 Series VSMs will be available from April 2017 onwards. Please contact us with regard to pre-orders.
