The National High Magnetic Field Laboratory hosts the Theory Winter School in January every year.

  • Overview

    The National High Magnetic Field Laboratory held its sixth Theory Winter School in Tallahassee, Florida from January 8 to 12, 2018. This year, the lectures focused on the synergy among several disciplines of physics, including quantum information, condensed matter, cold atoms, high energy and statistical physics. In this winter school, we brought together leading experts to give a series of lectures aimed at graduate students and postdoctoral researchers. The lectures introduced and explained concepts explored in quantum information theory, such as entanglement, and outstanding questions in many-body physics.

    The only facility of its kind in the United States, the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory (less formally known as the Magnet Lab) is the largest and highest-powered magnet laboratory in the world, headquartered in a sprawling 370,000-square-foot complex near Florida State University in Tallahassee. The lab also includes sites at the Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico and the University of Florida in Gainesville. Together these three institutions operate the lab, collaborating in a unique, interdisciplinary way to advance basic science, engineering and technology in the 21st century.

    The Magnet Lab.

    Established by the National Science Foundation in 1990, the lab is a national resource open to both curious visitors and world-renowned scientists. Centralizing the country's greatest magnet-related tools, resources and expertise is not only efficient and cost-effective, but also encourages fruitful, collaborative research at the highest level. Every year, more than 900 visiting scientists and engineers from across the world conduct experiments using our state-of-the-art equipment. Our magnets are far larger, far more powerful and far more complex than the everyday magnets most people are familiar with. Many were designed, developed and built by our magnet engineering and design team, widely recognized as the finest in the world.

  • Accommodation

    Invited speakers and registered participants will be lodged at the Wyndham Garden Tallahassee Capitol. Speakers and participants do not need to make their own reservations; this will be handled by the Theory Winter School, which will also cover the cost.
