Detailed description:

Kerr Microscope system is facility for the visualisation of magnetic domains and magnetization processes as well as for optically recording magnetization curves on all kinds of magnetic materials, including bulk specimens like sheets or ribbons, magnetic films and multilayers, patterned films or micro- and nanowires. They are semi-automatic, contact-less, non-destructive measuring systems using the magneto-optical Kerr effect (MOKE) as contrast mechanism. The microscope is equipped with rotable in-plane magnet with maximum field of 0.3 T. Automatic off-axial light system allows for automatic and simultaneous visualization of all the components of magnetization vector.
