Anisotrometer, 1963

Anisotrometer, 1963

A device for measuring and recording the magnetization parameters in thin magnetic films used for computer storage elements. It was designed and built in the Burroughs Corporation's Paoli, Pennsylvania Research Laboratories ca. 1963 by my grandfather and his research group and patented in 1966 (patent No. 3254298). One of four photographs of the device recovered from my grandfather's lab notebooks. View full size.
