AUTOMATED MEASUREMENT SYSTEMS
11:00 AM / Monday, February 06, 2006
FLORIDA STATE UNIVERSITY
NATIONAL HIGH MAGNETIC FIELD LABORATORY
COMPETITIVE SOLICITATION K 4999-3
The NHMFL will purchase one or two fully automated measurement systems with the following
specifications:
System 1
Base system
The system must have a 16 Tesla (T) superconducting magnet, magnet power supply, dewar,
support structure, and quench protection system all built in and ready to use. The dewar must
have high capacity (at least 60 liters (L)) and low boil off such that the cryogens (LHe and LN2)
will last longer than two weeks during normal operation. The field uniformity must be +/- 0.1%
over 1 cm
The system must be able to control temperature between 1.9 Kelvin (K) and 400 K.
The system must be fully automated with the ability to sweep or change field or temperature with
computer control. The control programs must be fully developed, easy to use, and fully
configurable.
The system must be supplied with sample holders for all relevant measurements and spares along
with appropriate calibrated samples for calibration and verification of system performance.
Direct current resistivity
The system must allow for four-point direct current (DC) resistivity measurements to be made,
with a current range of 5 nA – 5 mA, and a sensitivity of 20 nV.
Vibrating sample magnetometry
The system must make magnetometry measurements using a vibrating sample (VSM) technique.
The VSM should have a RMS sensitivity of at least 5x10-6 emu. A LHe transfer line appropriate
for the VSM hardware should also be included.
Heat capacity
The system must make heat capacity measurements on samples ranging from 1 – 500 mg while
varying field (0-16 T) or temperature (1.9K – 300K), with a resolution of 10 nJ/K at 2 K.
Multi-function probe
The system must include a probe that allows the user to easily implement custom experiments.
This probe should include external ports that allow the user to install custom electrical leads,
optical cables, etc. The probe should contain a puck assembly that plugs into the system’s builtin electronics, and should also contain a calibrated thermometer.
System 2
Base system
The system must have a 9 Tesla (T) superconducting magnet, magnet power supply, dewar,
support structure, and quench protection system all built in and ready to use. The dewar must
have high capacity (at least 60 liters (L)) and low boil off such that the cryogens (LHe and LN2)
will last longer than two weeks during normal operation. The field uniformity must be +/0.01% over 5 cm (longitudinal).
The system must be able to control temperature between 1.9 Kelvin (K) and 400 K.
The system must be fully automated with the ability to sweep or change field or temperature with
computer control. The control programs must be fully developed, easy to use, and fully
configurable.
The system must be supplied with sample holder for all relevant measurements and spares along
with appropriate calibrated samples for calibration and verification of system performance. If
both system 1 and system 2 are purchased, only one set of calibrated samples is required.
Direct current resistivity
The system must allow for four-point direct current (DC) resistivity measurements to be made,
with a current range of 5 nA – 5 mA, and a sensitivity of 20 nV.
Torque magnetometry
The system must be able to measure samples up to 2 x 2 mm2 via torque magnetometry, as a
function of temperature, field, and orientation.
AC susceptibility
The system must be able to perform AC susceptibility and extraction DC magnetization
measurements, in a temperature range of 1.9 – 300K, in an AC frequency range of 10 Hz to 10
kHz, and with an AC susceptibility sensitivity of 2 x 10-8 emu.

ATTACHMENT #1
CONTRACTOR’S INSURANCE (for contracts of $100,000 and over)
The Contractor shall not commence any work in connection with this agreement until he has obtained all the following
types of insurance and such insurance has been approved by the purchaser, nor shall the Contractor allow any
subcontractor to commence work on his subcontract until all similar insurance required for the subcontractor has been
so obtained and approved. All insurance policies shall be with insurers qualified and doing business in Florida, and
with an A.M. Best rating of no less than A.X. The purchaser shall be furnished proof of coverage of insurance by
certificates of insurance accompanying the contract documents and shall name the Florida State University and Board of
Trustees as an additional name insured. The insurer shall provide 30 days written notice to the certificate holder if a
policy is to be canceled before the expiration date thereof.
The purchaser shall be exempt from, and in no way liable for, any sums of money that may represent a deductible in any
insurance policy. The payment of such deductible shall be the sole responsibility of the Contractor and/or
Subcontractor providing such insurance.
A.
Workers Compensation Insurance
The Contractor shall secure and maintain during the life of this agreement, Worker’s Compensation Insurance
for all his employees connected with the work of this project and, in case any work is sublet, the Contractor
shall require the subcontractor similarly to provide Worker’s Compensation Insurance for all the latter’s
employees unless such insurance shall comply fully with the Florida Worker’s Compensation Law. In case
any class of employees engaged in hazardous work under this contract at the site of the project is not protected
under Worker’s Compensation statute, the Contractor shall provide, and cause each subcontractor to provide,
adequate insurance satisfactory to the purchaser, for protection of his employees not otherwise protected.
B.
Contractor’s Public Liability and Property Damage Insurance
The Contractor shall secure and maintain during the life of this agreement, COMPREHENSIVE GENERAL
LIABILITY AND COMPREHENSIVE AUTOMOBILE LIABILITY INSURANCE as shall protect him from
claims for damages, personal injury, including accidental death, as well as claims for property damages which
may arise from operations under this agreement whether such operations be by himself or by anyone directly or
indirectly employed by him and the amounts of such insurance shall be the minimum limit as follows:
1.
2.
3.
Bodily Injury Liability
Auto Property Damage Liability
Property Damage Liability(other than automobile)
$1,000,000 each accident
$ 500,000 each accident
$1,000,000 each accident
$1,000,000 aggregate operations
$1,000,000 aggregate protective
$1,000,000 aggregate contractual
Insuring clause for both BODILY INJURY AND PROPERTY DAMAGE shall be amended to provide
coverage on an OCCURRENCE basis.
C.
4.
“XCU” (Explosion, collapse, underground damage) --the contractor’s liability
Policy shall provide “XCU” coverage for those classifications in which they are excluded.
5.
Contractual Liability - work contracts--The contractor’s liability policy shall cover such contracts
when they are affected.
Subcontractor’s Public Liability and Property Damage Insurance
The Contractor shall require each of his subcontractors to secure and maintain during the life of this contract;
insurance of the type specified above and insures the activities of his subcontractors in his policy, as specified
