A multiscale approach to paleomagnetic analysis of geological materials

Lakeshore VSM/AGM

Our Lakeshore PMC MicroMag system is now installed and ready to use. The system combines both vibrating sample magnetometer (VSM) and alternating gradient field magnetometer (AGM) options, providing better flexibility in the range of samples that can be measured. The instrument provides rapid magnetic characterisation of natural samples, primarily via hysteresis and first-order reversal curve (FORC) measurements. Currently the system operates only at room temperature. We hope to upgrade to both the high and low temperature options in the future. Follow these links for detailed technical specifications of the VSM and AGM options.


3900 VSM Mode

Below you will find a series of useful video tutorials by Lakeshore engineer Cosmin Radu, that we made during the installation of our system. These include how to convert between VSM and AGM modes.
