SKJ-50A CZ crystal grower
A complete Czochralski (CZ) style growing system is
considered to be among the best in accuracy and stability for growing
crystals. This SKJ-50A CZ crystal grower donated by MTI Corporation has been proven
to be excellent for pulling various oxide crystals with melting point up to
2100 oC. It can also grow other non-oxide crystals under a vacuum
condition. The diameter of crystals can be as large as 2-3 inches.
Oxygen-isotope exchange apparatus
This apparatus is used to exchange oxygen isotopes
using a gas-phase diffusion process for various oxides. The maximum
temperature is 1200 oC.
7 T superconducting magnet
with a variable temperature cryostat from 2.5 K to 700 K
This 7 T
superconducting magnet from Janis Research Company, Inc. can be used to
perform various physical property measurements from 2.5 K to 700 K in a magnetic
field up to 7 T. The measurements include resistivity, magnetosistance, Hall
effect, thermoelectric power, and ac susceptibility.
KSL-1700X Bench-Top Muffle
This muffle furnace from MTI can be used to
prepare various polycrystalline samples. The maximum temperature is 1700 oC.
GSL1300-40X Desktop Alumina
This desktop alumina
tube furnace from MTI can be used to prepare various polycrystalline samples
under different gas environments (e.g. vacuum, oxygen, argon, nitrogen, and
mixed gas). The maximum temperature is 1300 oC.
Destop X-ray Diffractometer
This desktop X-ray Diffractometer from MTI can be used to check phase purity of various polycrystalline samples.
The AFM/MFM/STM from Attocube can be integrated into Quantum Design PPMS system so that measurements can be done at various
temperatures from 2 to 400 K and under different magnetic fields from 20 mOe to 90 kOe.
9 T Quantum Design PPMS with
ultra-low field option
Physical Property Measurement System (PPMS) from Quantum Design is housed in
Room 142, ASCB, California State University, Los Angeles. It can be used to perform electrical and thermal transports,
specific heat, and magnetic measurements in a field as high as 90 kOe and as low
as 20 mOe. For DC magnetic measurement, the maximum temperature can be as
high as 1100 K, and the accuracy of the moment is better than 10-7 emu in low
