Gold Medal Greene
Chief Scientist Laura Greene recognized by the Tallahassee Scientific Society for her exemplary career achievements in science and contributions to science education and outreach.
Anything but Boring
The hollow bore of magnet coils is where all the magic happens in experiments at the National MagLab. Find out more about what makes this empty space a blank canvas for discovery.
Changes in the chemical makeup of quantum material SrCu2(BO3)2 yields stable pairs and new spin states in high magnetic fields.
Sleeper Compound Shows "Lazarus Superconductivity"
In a uranium-based crystal once dismissed as boring, scientists have seen superconductivity arise, perish, then return to life under the influence of high magnetic fields.
