Kerr Magnetometer: Tc-Distribution Measurement

This pump-probe setup enable measurements of magnetization state after the sample is locally heated by the pump-pulse which has a pulse duration of 1 nanosecond. The computerized energy level of the pump pulse allows fine variation of the heating over a significant range. Combined with a tunable external field, the magnetization characteristics of a HAMR media sample can be analyzed over a broad temperature range across Curie temperature. Distribution of Curie temperature is one of the medium characteristics can be obtained from the measurements.
