Dr. William H. Cloud uses a torque magnetometer in studying the magnetic properties of single crystals. The crystal sample is inserted in a holder which is rotated between the pole caps of the electromagnet. Such studies help determine the ease or difficulty with which different types of materials can be magnetized. Dr. Cloud is one of the scientists in DuPont's Central Research Department whose fundamental research studies have led to an understanding of the mechanism of the unusual behavior of the chromium manganese antimonides, new material with unique on and off magnetic characteristics.
