The heat capacity option for the PPMS will run fully automated relaxation heat capacity measurements under high-vacuum.
The AC measurement system (ACMS) can perform both AC susceptibility and DC magnetization measurements without changing between hardware. A single automated measurement system is capable of both. The VSM (vibrating sample magnetometer) option allows for SQUID-style measurements on shorter time scales.
The AC Transport option (ACT) supports four different automated electrical transport modes: AC resistivity, five-wire Hall effect, I-V curves and critical current measurements.
This option adds resistance bridge capabilities to the instrument providing four independent channels for van der Pauw and four-wire resistance measurements.
