Magnetometry with a vibrating-sample magnetometer
Magnetometry provides information on the magnetic properties of the sample material as a function of the magnetic field.
A vibrating-sample magnetometer (VSM), also referred to as a Foner magnetometer, is used in the measurement. According to Faraday’s Law of Induction, a changing magnetic field will produce an electric field, which can be measured to obtain information about the magnetic field.
Some of the properties that the VSM can measure include magnetic moment, coercivity, and hysteresis loop. Magnetometry is suitable for thin films, bulk materials, liquids, or powders.
