Time for MagLab Open House!
Come celebrate science past, present and future at the MagLab’s 25th annual Open House event on Sat, Feb 22nd! It’s free and fun for all ages across space and time!
A Conversation with Jeremy Owens
Thanks to funding from a prestigious fellowship, this MagLab geochemist will learn more about ancient climate change, and perhaps help us understand modern climate change in the process.
Science Friends, Through Thick and Thin
When women in STEM encounter hurdles in their careers, having fellow female scientists as friends can make all the difference.
MLK Distinguished Service Award Winner
Congratulations to MagLab researcher Huan Chen who was awarded for her work to advance the diversity and research mission of the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory and FSU.
Picture Paints a Thousand Molecules
Scientists have captured molecular maps of animal tissue with unprecedented detail by coupling a powerful technique with a world-record magnet.
Electron Spin Resonance
New research shows how transition metal can retain quantum information, important work on the path to next-generation quantum technologies.
Nemesis to Superconductivity
Nematic phase with elements of both liquids and solids weakens superconductivity in iron-based superconductor.
New Research Offers Path to Understanding Sleep
High-field magnets imaged a possible path for metabolic waste and suggests that brain waste removal may be one reason why we sleep.
Scientists use our magnets to explore semiconductors, superconductors, newly-grown crystals, buckyballs and materials from the natural world — research that reveals the secret workings of materials and empowers us to develop new technologies.
Scientists here are working to optimize petroleum refining, advance potential bio-fuels such as pine needles and algae, and fundamentally change the way we store and deliver energy by developing better batteries.
Latest Science Highlights
Nuclear Spin Patterning Controls Electron Spin Coherence
31 January 2020
Electron spin resonance work shows how transition metal can retain quantum information, important work on the path to next-generation quantum technologies.
Brain Waste Pathway Found
23 January 2020
Little is known about the path of metabolic waste clearance from the brain. Here, high-field magnetic resonance images a possible pathway for metabolic waste removal from the brain and suggests that waste clearance may be one reason why we sleep.
Nematic Phase Weakens Superconductivity
23 January 2020
A nematic phase is where the molecular/atomic dynamics show elements of both liquids and solids, like in liquid crystal displays on digital watches or calculators. Using high magnetic fields and high pressure, researchers probed the electronic states of an iron-based superconductor and found that its nematic state weakened superconductivity.
