8600 Series VSM - Overview with Brad Dodrill

Brad Dodrill, Lake Shore VP of Sales and Senior Scientist, demonstrates the ease of operation and measurement speed of our
award-winning 8600 Series VSM in this new quick-look video from Lake Shore Cryotronics. Using the 7-in electromagnet version
(Model 8607)for his video demo, Dodrill discusses the components, features, and versatility of the system, highlighting:
  • The easily settable magnet pole gaps, including the position that provides for the best sensitivity
  • The ease of changing one gap setting to another without having to recalibrate the VSM
  • Temperature and gas flow instrumentation that provides for automated variable temperature measurements
  • Software control of head allowing quick exchanges of samples, saddling of samples, and auto-rotation
  • The three variable temperature options and their convenient installation

Also in the video, Dodrill discusses the ability of the 8600 Series system to sweep the field as fast as 10 kOe/s and record data as quickly as 10 ms/pt. Then demonstrating the system’s data acquisition and analysis software, he shows examples of a hysteresis loop and series of first order reversal curve (FORC) measurements and the short amount of time it takes to execute these measurements.
