New Company Rhomap Aims to Meet the Growing Demand for Specialist Magneto-Transport Measurement Systems
(Nanowerk News) Research and development into new materials continues to expand to meet the wider ranging needs of current and emerging technological applications. There is a growing trend within academic and industrial research and development for off the shelf turn-key measurement solutions which combine ease of use with high level research functionality and measurement sensitivity.
In the field of functional materials, the need for specialist turn-key systems is growing as scientists focus upon research into new materials and systems for the next generation of semiconductors, photovoltaics, spintronics and ferromagnetic systems.
The new Ohmpoint Measurement System from Rhomap Ltd is a flexible research tool that offers a range of software selectable sample connection probe geometries in one system. The instrument allows users to measure resistance in two or four point geometry, sheet resistance and magneto-transport behaviour, including Hall effect and magnetoresistance. The flexibility of the system also enables the user to easily select between individual measurements and batch scanning of multiple samples.
The Ohmpoint system is controlled through the bespoke MeasureR software interface that provides a flexible and intuitive user experience.
Rhomap Ltd is a new company based in the North-East of England that is launching a highly sensitive turn-key magneto-transport electrical measurement system. The system is designed for research and development laboratories studying magnetic thin-films, magnetic nanostructures, spintronic systems and a range of semiconducting material systems.
