Computer-controlled Quantum Design Physical Properties Measurement System (PPMS)

The PPMS was designed to measure heat capacity, thermal transport, and thermoelectric effects.  Key optional features of the MPMS have been greatly expanded and improved in the PPMS.  The PPMS brings a new level of measurement automation to researchers in rapidly expanding fields such as materials science, condensed matter physics, biology and analytical chemistry.  The tremendous flexibility of the PPMS - open architecture - lets you create your own experiments and easily interface your own third-party instruments to the PPMS hardware. For example, we can connect a user's equipment to PPMS analog outputs with signals proportional to magnetic field, system temperature, bridge resistance, bridge excitation, etc.
