Version 2.0 VSM software released

We’ve released a new version of software for our 8600 Series VSM system. In addition to numerous improvements for system stability and usability, the 2.0 release features:Source: Lakeshore…

Measurement performance of our new 10-inch VSM — read the app note

For researchers requiring higher applied magnetic fields than our 4- and 7-inch 8600 Series VSMs, we now offer a 10-inch electromagnet version (Model 8610). Providing fields as high as 3.6 T (>36 kOe), it is particularly ideal for characterizing permanent magnet materials, such as rare-earth NdFeB magnets, which typically require large fields to saturate and demagnetize the materials.

‘Practical Magnetism’ article notes the control capabilities of our VSM for FORC analysis

We blogged earlier about a paper referencing the use of the 8600 Series VSM for first-order reversal curve (FORC) measurements for magnetofossil research. On a related topic, we’d like to call attention to a recent article published in The IRM Quarterly that also references the utility of our VSM for rock magnetism studies involving FORCs.

New paper references the use of 8600 Series VSM for magnetofossil research

A paper just published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States describing the study of magnetofossils as environmental change biomarkers references the use of a Lake Shore 8600 Series VSM for determining a special magnetic signature of the magnetofossil samples.
