Quantum Magnetism (QM)

vltp

The Integrated Laboratory of Quantum Magnetism (QM) has a variety of world class, almost unique, instrumentation in the region of very low temperatures and high magnetic fields. It is useful to those who require physical studies of material properties under these extreme conditions. Techniques include microhall magnetometry, heat capacity and measurements under very high magnetic fields.

It provides access to world-class instrumentation enabling magnetic, electrical, and thermal studies of molecular materials in the region of very low temperatures as well as new tools to carry out experiments on minute amounts of sample, single layers of molecular magnets or even a single one, under extreme conditions.
