Recent Research from the High B/T Facility

Helium nanodroplets shed light on phase separations in other materials.

Long-time decay of the NMR amplitude arising from solid helium-three that tracks the loss of the solid component to the formation of degenerate Fermi liquids in nanodroplets.

At the MagLab, our research pertains to materials, energy and life.

Materials Research

Scientists and engineers are on a quest to make products smaller, faster, smarter and stronger. New materials are at the center of this race: They enable the high-tech products that have changed your life and will continue to change it in ways you cannot yet imagine.

Life Research

Scientists working at the MagLab use powerful magnets to learn more about living structures and investigate disease.

Energy Research

Creating, storing and conserving energy — a product for which there is a limited supply and nearly unlimited demand — has been a topic of global conversations for decades.
