Characterization measurements

On the one hand characterization measurements are useful to check the quality of the crystals before expensive neutron diffraction experiments are performed. On the other hand, these measurements often reveal important results which go far beyond a simple quality inspection. Magnetization and electronic transport measurements are performed with our Multiple Property Measurement System (MPMS) from Quantum Design with a maximum magnetic field of 7 Tesla and temperatures between 2K and 400K. For the resistivity measurements the MPMS is equipped with a resistance bridge from Linear Research Inc. Single crystal X-ray diffraction experiments are performed at the NSLS, the APS and at HASYLAB.
