A SQUID magnetometer is used to measure extremely subtle magnetic field based on superconducting loops containing Josephson junctions. The SQUID magnetometer provides solutions for a unique class of sensitive magnetic measurements in key areas such as high-temperature superconductivity, biochemistry, and magnetic recording media. The instrument is used to conduct fundamental and applied research as well as for training undergraduate and graduate students. In particular, the instrument is used to study AC/DC magnetization, magnetoresistance, and Hall effect of magnetic and electronic materials.
