8 Measurement techniques
Resistance measurements by instrumentation (Rxx, Rxy, piezo-cantilever) principle: apply current (current source) and measure voltage (voltmeter) Conventional lock-in amplifier technique Oscillating current applied, phase sensitive detection of corresponding voltage DC resistance measurement technique DC current with switching polarities to remove offset AC resistance bridge Resistance determined by nulling or measuring unbalanced signal Q: what is advantage/disadvantage of the lock-in technique compared to the DC technique? Capacitance measurement for magnetic torque AH capacitance bridge: automatic balancing GR capacitance bridge: manual balancing Q: what other physical properties can be measured by the capacitance measurement device? Typical capacitance bridge TDO resonance frequency measurement

9 Exercises 1: Resistance measurement on the standard resistor
(hints given in the appendix) Lock-in technique configure resistance measurement setup with 1 lock-in amplifier (SR 830) Change parameters (current, frequency, time constant, ..) and check the voltage readings DC technique Configure measurement setup with 1 DC current source (Keithley 6221) and 1 DC nanovoltmeter (Keithly 2182) Apply constant DC current ( < 10 mA) and monitor the voltage Setup the Delta mode and test with different parameters (current, delay time,..) Exercises 2: Capacitance measurement on the standard capacitor AH bridge : hook up coax cables to the decade capacitor box and press buttons (2) GR bridge configure GR bridge and 1 lockin-amplifer for capacitance measurement balance the GR bridge to find the capacitance value (should be similar to obtained from (1) find the conversion factor between lock-in signal and capacitance

10 Exercises 3: Balancing the piezo-cantilever
Build a measurement circuit with a given bridge circuit box Balance the bridge inside cryostat Demonstration 1: TDO measurement Exercises 4: Setting up instruments for the real samples Setup instruments for the Hall sensor (DC resistance delta mode) and piezo-cantilever (lock-in technique). Refer to the breakout box diagram in the next page. NOTE: Do not apply currents until further notice. (2) Instructor will setup AC resistance bridge for the transport measurement (3) Connect cables to the AH bridge for the capacitance measurement (4) Using the data acquisition program, collect the data at zero field as a function of time

11 Exercises 5: Data acquisition
NHMFL breakout box variable resistor can be used as pseudo-current source setup when combined with lock-in oscillator Exercises 5: Data acquisition Collect data while sweeping magnetic field under different instrumentation setup Collect data at different temperatures Collect data at different angles Exercise/Demonstration: Data analysis Plot the data using data analysis program Q1) Plot the temperature vs. magnetic field. Why does temperature reading change with field? Any way to circumvent the problem? Q2) What is the oscillation frequency of the quantum oscillations? Q3) Capacitance torque signal from Sr2RuO4 sample look different from the text book (saw-tooth not sinusoidal). Why? (2) Perform FFT with different settings (field range, different background, FFT windows, …) (answer given in the appendix)

12 Appendix I Resistance measurement (Lock-in technique)
Oscillator out to the current terminals with a large resistor connected in series Connect voltage terminals to voltage input (A-B mode) osc. out voltage input sample Current limiting resistor (R) I = V/(Rsample+R) ~ V/R (if R >> Rsample) DC resistance measurement (delta mode) Configure Delta (picture above) : set I-high, I-low, Delay. ,,,, Press Delta to arm Press TRIG to start delta mode operation
