Summary on Grant Application Form
The QD SQUID magnetometer at the IRCS has, for 10 years, played a central role, resulting in more than 100 publications and training of more than 20 students. Research has contributed to important advances in HTS including the discovery of new superconducting materials and the assessment and optimisation of the critical currents of known systems. The facility and associated expertise in magnetic measurements and interpretation have attracted considerable interest outside superconductivity in areas such as magnetic multilayers. There are clearly a great number of advantages in (a) consolidating the facility to allow users outside the IRC to take full advantage of it and (b) extending its capability to incorporate the latest technological developments. The latest QD XL7 magnetometer has new features that are not available on our present system and are essential for measurement of hysteretic materials. Elliott Scientific are making a significant contribution toward the cost on the basis of a formal collaboration which will produce a technical document detailing the advantages of the XL7. This will appear on the WWW. Funding of this application will allow us to continue to generate first class research and to provide an invaluable multidisciplinary training and research service to scientists in Cambridge and elsewhere.
