If you are an advanced graduate student, postdoctoral associate or early career investigator looking to gain practical measurement experience, the MagLab User Summer School will help you develop skills you can use in your home laboratory and in user facilities worldwide.

The weeklong summer school features tutorials on measurement techniques, practical exercises and plenary talks from experts in the field of condensed matter physics.

The next User Summer School takes place in May 2017. Please follow us on Facebook or Twitter for updates.

This experience is designed to provide a “technique toolkit” to early career scientists that includes:

  • Noise types and theory; noise suppression techniques
  • Transport techniques
  • Magnetometry: AC, torque, vibrating sample magnetometer, SQUID
  • Heat capacity measurements
  • Magneto-optics
  • Infrared and terahertz spectroscopy
  • Ultrasound spectroscopy
  • High-pressure methods
  • NMR techniques for chemistry, biology and condensed matter
  • Electron paramagnetic resonance (electron spin resonance)
  • Cryogenic techniques
  • Measurements at ultra-low temperatures
  • The nuts and bolts of data acquisition
