Sample Submission

Several pre-made, typical measurement sequences are available.  Other measurements are possible.

Samples for which data can be collected include air sensitive materials.

For best results we recommend that samples fill a volume of 2-3 mm H x 2.6 mm D (typically 20-40 mg).  Qualitative measurements are often possible on samples weighing as little as 1 mg.

To submit a sample please complete the Magnetic Sample Submission Form [pdf].  For groups within USC, samples can be delivered to GSRC Room 514.  For groups outside of USC, a shipping program is available.  Further sample submission information is available on the submission form.  Upon completion, the form can be emailed to to begin the submission process.

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
