Physical Property Measurement System(PPMS)

The Quantum Design PPMS represents a unique concept in laboratory equipment: an open architecture, variable temperature-field system, designed to perform a variety of automated measurements. It is an open architecture variable temperature-field system that is optimized to perform a variety of automated measurements, including the electro-transport, thermal transport, magnetometry and heat capacity properties. Use the PPMS with specially-designed measurement options, or easily adapt it to your own experiments. Sample environment controls include fields up to ± 16 tesla, temperature range of 50mk-400K and pressure up to 3 GPa. Its advanced expandable design combines many features in one instrument to make the PPMS the most versatile system of its kind.
