MPMS3 SQUID magnetometer

From Quantum Design

The MPMS3 (formerly MPMS SQUID VSM) is providing users with the sensitivity of a SQUID (Superconducting Quantum Interference Device) and the choice of multiple measurement modes. 

Magnetometer with highest sensitivity
User-friendly operation
Sophisticated temperature and magnetic field control
Our fastest SQUID magnetometer ever
  • ≤10-8 emu sensitivity at low fields with less than 10 s averaging 
  • Temperature Range: 1.8 - 400 K
  • 7 Tesla Magnet
DC magnetic moment

The DC scan mode is for fast and sensitive measurements of the magnetic moment.


The VSM mode is for very fast and sensitive measurements. It provides the highest number of data points per time unit and thus is perfect for M(H,T) measurements.

AC susceptibility

The AC susceptibilitay option can be very helpful for materials with a dissipative mechanism when exposed to an oscillating magnetic field. The susceptibility is descrobed as having real and imaginary components.

Ultra low field capabilities

Fiber-optic sample holder

„We have been using the MPMS3 since the end of 2014 for measurements on hard magnets and metallic and oxide heterostructures. We specifically appreciate its high sensitivity combined with fast VSM measurements that allow First Order Reversal Curve (FORC) analyses in very short periods of time. The Oven option is particularly important to us for the determination of paramagnetic moments, high-temperature coercive fields and Curie temperatures.”
