Advancement in internet, automation and data communication has led to massive growth in global knowledge-base over the past few decades. It has opened the possibility of developing global research laboratories where experiments and measurement systems can be shared in real time. The global magnetoelectric measurement system (GMMS) developed in this paper allows remote measurement of magnetoelectric properties of single phase and composite samples with ultra-high sensitivity, reducing the operation time from 2-3 hours to approximately 15 minutes. A secure website was developed to (i) create the internet-based control of the measurement system, (ii) compile, email and download the experimental results and (iii) video conferencing between the users. The magnetoelectric measurement system includes an electromagnetic coil to generate DC magnetic field up to 1.5 T, a Helmholtz coil, function generator, high power supply, and a translational stage with a 2 DOF gripper which allows measurements from L-T to T-T mode.
