The MagLab has delivered the resistive insert coils for the 25-Tesla Series Connected Hybrid Magnet for the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin. This magnet system includes a unique conical warm bore with 30 degree opening angle and will be used for neutron-scattering experiments and an unprecedented 25T central field. This constitutes a 47% increase in magnetic field available for these experiments while also providing an increase in solid-angle.

Tim Murphy has been named the new director of the DC Field Facility at the MagLab.

After a series of frustrating failures, a team of MagLab scientists realized they were tackling the wrong problem.

Using the 35 T and 45T magnet systems, coupled with high pressures up to 1.47 GPa, researchers at the Magnet Lab have observed a massive, pressure induced change in the Fermi surface of elemental chromium. Part of this reorganization results in the creation of quantum interference oscillations at high pressures which behave differently from those arising from standard Landau quantization.

Using the 45T hybrid magnet, researchers uncover the quantum Hall effect in hydrogenated graphene.

Research suggests that anisotropy in the high-symmetry coordination environment of Ni(II) complex is an order of magnitude larger than any previously known.

Researchers find high critical current density in the recently discovered oxypnictide superconductor SmFeAs(O,F), raising hopes for potential electronics applications.

Using the 45 tesla hybrid magnet, researchers at the MagLab observed the long-predicted but never-before-seen fractal known as the Hofstadter butterfly. This work enriches our understanding of the basic physics of electrons in a magnetic field and opens a new route for exploring the role of topology in condensed matter systems.

Thanks to conditions created by the MagLab’s 45 tesla hybrid magnet, scientists have made a technological breakthrough on graphene: When they placed it on top of hexagonal boron nitride, graphene became a semiconductor.
