Message from the MagLab Director regarding the COVID-19

Here at the MagLab, we value the health and safety of our staff, users, visitors and community.

While we are not hosting any visitors or users on site at this time, we are happy to share that the MagLab's core research efforts across our three sites have resumed with extra precautions in place to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

We invite users to contact their MagLab Facility Director or scientific host about remote access, sending samples or working with on-site collaborators to conduct their high magnetic field experiments. Many of our world-record magnets are available to continue your important research, however due to the large staffing requirements needed for our hybrid magnets, the 45T and SCH will not be available until sometime in the future. Please request your magnet time at

Access to our building continues to be restricted and, like many organizations across the globe, our staff who are doing work that can be done from home continue to work from home.

We look forward to a time when we can host our visiting scientists, school groups, and the public for tours of our facility safely. Until then, please explore our virtual tour and Magnet Academy to fulfill your spark for knowledge. Also, learn more about how high field magnets are helping in the fight against COVID-19.

Thank you for your understanding during these challenging times,

Greg Boebinger
