The SES Vibrating Sample Magnetometer (VSM) measures the magnetization of a sample of magnetic material under an external magnetic field by converting the dipole field of the sample into an ac electrical signal. A vibrator along with its electronics vibrates the sample with a fixed frequency and stabilized amplitude. The sample is driven to vibrate. Due to changes in flux, voltage proportional to the sample's magnetic moment is induced in the pickup coils. By calibrating this voltage to magnetic moment using calibration standards and measuring the magnetic field, the magnetic moment of the sample can be obtained. The software controls the instrument and measures the magnetic moment. Hysteresis Loop can also be drawn through this software and its parameters calculated.
