Facilities

The Oxford Centre for Applied Superconductivity has a series of new experimental facilities to address the current projects identified with the industrial partners, and new projects that will be initiated as the Centre expands. Researchers in the Centre will also have access to existing facilities in the Department of Physics and Materials.

New facilities of the Centre for Applied Superconductivity will include:

Panalytical Empyrean X-ray Diffractometer 

Powder and texture analysis.

 

ILabs instrument booking

Attocube Magnetic Force Microscope 

Low temperature magnetic imaging.

AttoDRY 1000

Flexible cryo-free superconducting vector magnet (9T/3T) platform.

TSST Pulsed Laser Deposition (PLD) facility

Thin fim growth of superconducting device materials.

16T Physical Properties Versatile Measurement System

High Current Power Supplies (2400 A)

   

Existing High Magnetic Field Facilities in the Clarendon Laboratory

 

Nicholas Kurti Pulsed Magnetic Field Laboratory

A newly upgraded 3MJ  capacitor bank will supply energy to create short pulsed high magnetic fields up to 70T.

Oxford Instruments 21T Superconducting Magnet 

Superconducting magnets up to 21 T with VTI insert to allow temperature sweep between 1.4K to 200 K.

15-17 T Superconducting Magnets

Superconducting magnets up to 17 T used mainly with home-build probes for transport, torque and specific heat measurements. A VTI can be adapted to allow the temperature to be varied between 1.4 K to 100 K.
