Sample Environment

The Sample Environment group help researchers in any phase of the experiment with sample environment issues: planning an experiment, loading a sample, preparing equipment for use, mounting at the spectrometer, and trouble-shooting if any problems are encountered. Any equipment used to alter a sample's environment falls under our care, from a milli-Kelvin dilution refrigeration system to a 1600° Celsius furnace, our equipment spans a large temperature range. Beyond precise temperature control we also have superconducting magnet systems with fields up to 15 Tesla and various other environment altering equipment for parameters such as pressure, voltage and current.

Here is a general overview of all the sample environment equipments.
