Physical Properties Lab
The Institute for Quantum Phenomena in Novel Materials and the Sample Environment Group operate a variety of research instruments for bulk sample characterisation. The Physical Properties Lab offers three fully operating measurement systems with magnetic fields up to 14 T and temperatures down to 350 mK. The available measurement options are resistivity, heat capacity, heat conduction, magnetisation, and AC susceptibility, using PPMS and MPMS SQUID systems, respectively. Other measurement options like the dielectric constant measurement, electric polarization measurements or the cantilever magnetometer may be available on request.
Access to the Physical Properties Lab experiments is organized via the booking calendar. To apply for measurement time please click on the desired instrument or the desired day and fill in the form. The request will then be forwarded to the respective instrument responsible.
Presently the experiments can be booked only by members of the Helmholtz Zentrum Berlin. The access for external scientists has to be mediated by an in-house scientist. Please contact the instrument responsibles or any of the Physical Properties Lab staff.
