This instrument measures the magnetic properties of materials in fields from 0 to 2 T and in temperatures from 4K to 300K. Using a set of vector coils, measurements of magnetic anisotropy and inhomogeneities can also be made. The device, located in the physics department, was purchased with a grant from the National Science Foundation.
