Can I have more data points in a certain portion of my measurement?
Yes. This is done to concentrate, for example, on hysteresis curve slope changes (i.e. switchings). One can program such an experiment as a custom ramp using the Ramp Generator function of the Lake Shore IDEAS VSM software. This is done by clicking the Custom option on the Field, Temperature, and Angle experiment setups. When you click the Custom option, the Ramp Generator will appear, presenting the ramp that was previously set up on the experiment setup form. This allows you to construct a basic skeleton of an experiment and then use the Ramp Generator to edit the ramp to fit the needs of your experiment. For example, you can set up a hysteresis experiment that goes from 10 kOe to -1 kOe with smaller increments of 5 Oe to determine a more precise coercivity. For more on how to use the Ramp Generator, see the help file provided with the IDEAS VSM software.
