Last week, one of our installers, Dr. Jeffrey Lindemuth had the pleasure of travelling to Brazil to install a Model 7404 vibrating sample magnetometer (VSM) at the Department of the Physics of Materials and Mechanics in the Institute of Physics, at the University of Sao Paulo.
The Department of the Physics of Materials and Mechanics experimental group is studying "a large amount of novel materials (semiconductors, semicondutor heterostructures, superconductors, and magnetic materials) . . . . experimental research addresses the technical challenges that are facing the growth of these materials as well as the understanding of their basic physical phenomena" (Fisica dos Materiais e Mecanica: Areas of Research).
We'd like to thank Renato Cohen for providing these pictures to us and allowing us to use them on our blog.
