The physical properties measurement system (PPMS) is a complex device allows to operator a broad option of measurements including magnetic properties, electro-transport properties and thermal properties. PPMS using a vibrating sample magnetometer (VSM) for the magnetic moment detection and provide both, DC (direct current) and AC (alternative current), types of measurement in a wide range of temperatures from 1.9 K – 400 K and the presence of external magnetic field ranging from -9 T to +9 T. The Electrical Transport Option (ETO) enables users to make several different types of transport measurements over a wide range of resistance values and sample types. The ETO supports three types of measurements including resistivity, IV curves and differential resistance. The current source has a minimum precision of 1 nA and a maximum current of 100 mA. It is capable of supplying both DC and AC current with frequencies from 0.1 Hz to 200 Hz.
