Did you know? Adams can test the angular direction (ϕ, θ) of magnetization!

How well do you need to know your magnets? Using our m-axis testing equipment, magnetic moment, remanence and magnetization direction of magnetic dipoles can be characterized with high precision. The calculation is based on determination of the dipole using an integrated AMR sensor set-up. The three-dimensional position (x, y, z) of the magnet as well […]

The Basics of Magnetism

To understand what makes a material magnetic, you have to think small. Really small. Like atom small. Atoms are the basic building blocks that come together to form molecules, which come together for form, well, just about everything around you! Inside every atom there are protons, neutrons, and electrons. Protons have a positive electrical charge, […]

The Care and Feeding of Different Kinds of Magnets
