The PPMS® is an automated low-temperature and magnet system for the measurement of material properties like specific heat, magnetic AC- and DC-susceptibility and both electrical and thermal transport properties.
The base unit of the PPMS® consists of a cryostat with a superconducting magnet coil. The different measurement possibilities (options) result from the use of different measurement inserts or sample holders and the call of the according software mode.
The optional EverCool™ II dewar features an integrated Helium-Reliquefier which makes the system virtually cryogen-free. Only Helium-gas is needed for purging the sample chamber.
