SQUID magnetometry

Jacek Szczytko I'm responsible for SQUID magnetometry laboratory at the Institute of Experimental Physics at the University of Warsaw. The laboratory has two SQUID magnetometers (Superconducting Quantum Intereference Devices): Quantum Design MPMS XL-7 with 7.0 T magnet and temperature range 1.5-400.0K and Cryogenics Ltd. SQUID (0.0-6.0T, 4.0-300.0K).

The QD MPMS XL-7 system was bought in 2011 from the project Centre for Preclinical Research and Technology (CePT) http://cept.wum.edu.pl/

I'm involved in the investigations of magnetic nanomaterials, magnetic molecules, molecular magnets and magnetic liquid crystals.

Magnetooptics of nanomaterials

Jacek Szczytko I'm responsible for magnetooptics laboratory. We have confocal microscopy (Attocube CFM) with 9.0T magnet, temperature in the cryostat 2.0-300.0K; Oxford Instrumets Optistat MO (5.0T magnet) with microscopic objective and Spectromag-10 (10T magnet) for 4-axis optical measurements.

We have Ti-Sa laser (Coherent MBR PS 110) with Coherent Verdi 10W pump + several laser and white light sources.

We investigate semiconducting nanostructures (QD, QW), polariton condensates, 2D materials (MoS2)

Magnetooptics Laboratory was equiped 2011-2013 by CEZAMAT.

Spectrophotometer CARY 5000

Varian Spectrophotometer CARY 5000 with VASRA (Variable Angle Specular Reflectance Accessory), DRA -2500 (integrating sphere) and optical cryostat 4.0-300K.

CARY 5000 was bought in 2011 from the project Fizyka u podstaw nowych technologii.


I have Nanosurf Easy Scan II STM (scanning tunneling microscopy) system.
