Hi, I am currently working with a SQUID magnetometer and I am having trouble comparing my experimental results to theoretical. What I would like to do is convert the output of the SQUID which is in EMU to the number of Bohr Magnetons/ion.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

My understanding is that EMU is the sum of all magnetic moments in the sample. My calculation so far has been

(SQUID output)x(Molar mass of magnetic atom) / N_{A}μ_{B}(sample mass)

I always end up with a Bohr magneton/ion less than 1, about 0.2-0.6. I think there is something I am missing or not understanding correctly.

Any help would be appreciated.
