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.

Laura Greene walks the red carpet as a science celebrity and waves to a crowd of adoring fans at the MagLab’s movie-themed Open House in 2017.

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.

Impurity-induced Discovery

Changes in the chemical makeup of quantum material SrCu2(BO3)2 yields stable pairs and new spin states in high magnetic fields.

Spin configurations at magnetic fields above 25T

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.
