Using Hummingbird Scientific’s magnetization holder, scientists can explore how magnetic materials and devices respond dynamically to applied in-plane magnetic fields. Specific applications include studies of the physics of functional magnetic and multiferroic materials such as magnetic alloys, complex oxides, giant/colossal magnetoresistance materials and nanoscale magnetic structures. The magnetization holder is also available in a high-performance version for the dedicated JEOL Lorentz TEM.
- Directly visualizing magnetic domain switching
- Observing microstructure interactions with domain-wall motion
- Correlating bulk magnetic measurements with nanoscale processes
How It Works
Using in-plane magnetic fields, Hummingbird Scientific’s magnetizing holder can apply up to +/- 900 Gauss* to the sample area. The system uses a built-in magnetic compensation circuit to limit the magnetic effect on the electron beam, increasing image quality and the maximum usable magnetic field (+/- 300 Oe*). The field is quantified and calibrated at the sample via a miniature field sensor.

The magnetic compensation circuit guides the field around and applies an opposite field above and below the sample position. Colored image to the left shows FEA results of the magnetic fields at the sample.Edit
Real-space observation of magnetic excitation in quasicrystal lattices
Magnetic reversal mechanism of quasicrystal artificial spin ice were studied with in-situ TEM magnetizing experiments. Using this technique, a team from Argonne National Lab found a new dendritic magnetic reversal mechanism in the quasicrystal spin ice lattitces. “As fabricated” and “Demagnetized” schematics show examples of the groups of magnetic bars whose magnetization reversed at each of the two field values.
