Magnicon has started a joint research project with PTB to establish a traceable calibration of our MFFT-1 magnetic field fluctuation thermometers.

Goal of the project is the traceability of MFFT-1 reference temperatures to the provisional low temperature scale 2000 (PLTS2000).

The MFFT-1 thermometer is a semi-primary high-accuracy Johnson noise thermometer designed for use at typical dilution refrigerator temperatures.

Learn more about the MFFT-1 thermometer.

This project is funded by the state of Berlin and the European Regional Development Fund (EFRE).

Magnicon is proud to announce some new activities in the field of high-precision metrology applications. Some devices are developed together with Physikalisch Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB), the German national metrology institute. Please contact us for more informations about prices and availability.

CCC Electronics
A new state-of-the-art electronics for Cryogenic Current Comparator (CCC) operation for high precision resistance measurements is under development right now. The 19" plug-in chassis includes two digital current sources, a nanovoltmeter acting as a null-detector, and a communication unit for PC control of all parameters. Together with our high-performance XXF-1 SQUID electronics the system allows fast and stable measurements with lowest uncertainty.

Nanovoltmeter
Resulting from our CCC electronics development we will offer the applied nanovoltmeter as a stand-alone device too. In comparison to available nanovoltmeters, this new chopper amplifier offers high bandwidth with short settling time and low voltage noise as well as low current noise performance.

Voltage Ramp Generator
Together with PTB we have developed a highly linear digital voltage ramp generator that can be used for traceable calibration of picoamperemeters. The fully computer controlled device allows voltage slopes between 1mV/s and 1000mV/s with ultra low variations.

Thank you!

Thank you very much for the great response and all the fruitful discussions at ULT 2008.

To improve our service and flexibility we now have opened a branch in Berlin. The office is located at premises of PTB Berlin with possible access to PTB infrastructure.

This gives us more flexibility for characterization and customization of our products as well as the possibility to be as close to current research as possible.

Additionally, we have increased our workforce to take our growing product range into account. Our new colleague is Dipl. Ing. Frank Ruede, an electrical engeneering technician with many years of experience in SQUID measurements, SQUID design, and SQUID system operation.

The address of our Berlin branch is:
Magnicon GbR
Division Berlin
Abbestr. 2-12
10587 Berlin
Germany

Phone: +49-30-34817958
Fax: +49-30-3481697958
E-Mail: ruede@magnicon.com

Thank you very much for the great response and fruitful discussions at our booth and during the poster sessions.

To adapt our internet representation to our growing range of products and to give you a better overview about this company, this brand-new website is now online.
