  Faraday Balance Laboratory

Building for Cryogenic Techniques

The Faraday System for magnetisation measurements is a facility enabling determinations in the range 2-300 K, using fields up to 7 T and gradients up to 10 T/m. The force is measured with a microbalance with a sensitivity of 0.01 mg, making it particularly appropriated for susceptibility measurements of powder samples. It has been used mainly to study molecular materials and compounds, that are being prepared and studied by C2TN initiative or, on a scientific collaboration basis, different compounds prepared by other research laboratories such as the Institut de Ciencia de Materials de Barcelona, ITQB, Technical Univ. of Lisbon (IST), and UNL.
