Hall Measurement Systems


MMR's Variable Temperature Hall System (VTHS) allows the user to make automatic measurements of resistivity, mobility and carrier concentration of a wide range of samples using the Van der Pauw method over a temperature range from 70K to 730K. Sample mounting is simple and allows rapid interchange of samples. The VTHS Hall Measurement Controller, the H-50, is compatible with a variety of computers through an IEEE-488 (GPIA) or RS-232 interface. MMR's Benchtop Electromagnet and Programmable Power Supply complement the VTHS. The system uses the VTHS Dewar described below.

Variable Temperature Hall Dewar


The VTHS Dewar is a low-profile Dewar designed to fit between the poles of a magnet to enable measurements to be made of the resistivity, Hall mobility and other properties of materials over a wide range of temperatures. Guarded triax leads provide electrical input to the sample via similarly guarded leads on a Kapton Harness to the sample on the cold stage. A Hall sensor immediately adjacent to the sample allows measurement of the magnetic field at the sample location.

 

In addition to the refrigerator and vacuum chamber, a temperature controller is needed, either manual or programmable; a source of dry nitrogen (99.998% purity); a filter dryer; and a vacuum pump capable of maintaining a vacuum <5 mTorr in the chamber. Other accessories that add to the convenience of operating the system are available from MMR.
