MagLab to Receive $184M NSF Renewal Grant
The National Science Foundation announces five-year funding grant for continued operation of the world’s most powerful magnet lab.
A Year at the MagLab
Want to understand the scope and impact of the National MagLab in just a few minutes? Check out this short-and-sweet brochure.
"CellBert" Named Lab MVB
The MagLab hit pay dirt with this handy hire, who works tirelessly to keep magnet areas spick and span and is much admired by co-workers.
Wire Insulation Will Enable Stronger Magnets
With a novel coating for a high-temperature superconducting wire, the MagLab paves the way to record-strong nuclear magnetic resonance magnets.
Quantum Hall Edge States in Bilayer Graphene
Scientists have constructed a map that will aid future exploration of a material that promises to transform technology.
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
Novel metallofullerene boosts dynamic nuclear polarization
17 April 2018
In this study, researchers added a low concentration of the endohedral metallofullerene (EMF) Gd2@C79N to DNP samples, finding that 1H and 13C enhancements increased by 40% and 50%, respectively, at 5 teslas and 1.2 Kelvin.
Ceramic insulation for high-temperature superconducting wire
19 March 2018
MagLab scientists and engineers have developed a special coating on Bi-2212 superconducting wire for electrical insulation in superconducting magnets that will enable the wire to be used in ultra-high field nuclear magnetic resonance magnets.
