The Scientific Facility Chemical Service develops techniques and maintains experimental facilities in order to support experimental groups of the Institute with the characterization of electrical, thermal and magnetic properties of new compounds and samples. Our mission targets at a great versatility and flexibility of the employed experimental methods including the development and cultivation of experimental techniques to perform measurements, e.g., on chemically highly sensitive and reactive small samples under inert gas conditions. Presently available are SQUID magnetometers, ac- susceptometers, dc- and ac-electrical resistivity setups and calorimeters in a broad range of temperature and magnetic fields. Materials currently under investigation are novel Weyl and Dirac materials, unusual magnetoresistive compounds, low-dimensional and frustrated magnetic quantum systems and systems with unusual magnetic ground states as e.g. frustrated quantum chain systems, multiferroic materials.
