Can measure bulk susceptibility, anisotropy of magnetic susceptibility (AMS), and susceptibility between -196C and 20C (CS-L adapter) and between 20 ºC and 700ºC (CS-3 adapter).
Bulk susceptibility and AMS can be measured on cores and cubes up to 2.5 cm in diameter. AMS can be measured using an automatic rotator. AMS is useful for qualitatively describing magnetic fabrics in rocks, sediments and glacial deposits.
Susceptibility versus temperature measurements can be used to identify the magnetic mineralogy of a specimen and its propensity to alter. High temperature measurements can be run in air or argon. Sample chips or powders of a variety of materials can be measured.
