Three ultrasonic spectrometers have been constructed for use with the continuous and pulsed magnetic field facilities of the NHMFL at the Tallahassee and Los Alamos sites. The first of these, designed for use with the dc magnets, is a heterodyne spectrometer with the capabilities of high velocity resolution and near-simultaneous measurements at several frequencies (typically near transducer harmonics). The other two spectrometers are designed for the short-pulsed magnets, with the capability of fast data acquisition. These spectrometers have been used in the study of metamagnetism in the heavy fermion materials.
