The Lake Shore Cryotronics 8600 Series Vibrating Sample Magnetometer (VSM) is a high-performance electromagnet-based vibrating sample magnetometer system for rapid, highly sensitive and convenient characterization of magnetic materials. The 8600 Series Vibrating VSM enables the measurement and characterization of magnetic properties of magnet material samples, including solids, powders, single crystals, thin films, nanostructures and liquids over a range of temperatures. The technology includes software for automating system control and acquiring sample measurement data for further analysis, making the VSM accessible to the non-specialist. Broad application versatility is maintained because measurement parameters can be easily defined and controlled by the user. Because the 8600 Series VSM can be ordered with an integrated cryostat and high-temperature furnace, it is possible to also characterize magnetic materials as a function of a large range of temperatures.
