A state-of-the-art facility equipped with instruments for studies of geo-, paleo-, rock, environmental, planetary, archaeo-, and bio-magnetism, with:
- double wall (mu-metal and transformer steel) shielded magnetostatic room
- 2G 755 pass-through horizontal cryogenic magnetometer (liquid helium free) capable of measuring discrete and U-Channel samples and also capable of doing AF and ARM experiments in-line fully automated
- JR5A spinner magnetometer
- Schoenstedt AF demagnetizer
- Molineaux AF demagnetizer
- 60 sample MM thermal demagnetizer
- Kappabridge MFK1-FA automatic spinner, three operating frequencies for AMS studies
- Bartington susceptibility meter
- 2G impulse magnetizer
- Pyrox Furnace to determine absolute paleointensites of lavas
- modified Molineaux VSM instrument
- Helmholtz coil for ARM studies
- k-T instrument to determine Curie points (from -200 up to 700 degreesC)
- Variable Field Translation Balance (VFTB) to determine Curie points, SIRM experiments, FORCS, back fields and Magnetic Grain Sizes. This instrument operates from -200 up to 700 degrees Celsius variable temperatures.
