LAKESHORE_Vibrating Sample Magnetometer

Lake Shore’s fully integrated vibrating sample magnetometers (VSM) are used to characterize the DC magnetic properties of materials as a function of magnetic field, temperature, and time. The magnetometer is used for basic characterizations of magnetic materials. The measured property is the dependency of the magnetic moment on the applied magnetic field. The results are usually reported as mass magnetization, moment per sample mass.
