Recent Research from the EMR Facility

Reversible magnetic switching in multifunctional material.

This cobalt(II) coordination complex changes color and magnetic properties with the addition of water

Recent Research from our Pulsed Field Facility

Selective mass enhancement close to a quantum critical point.

Temperature dependence of the upper critical field in thin films with various doping levels, for magnetic fields applied along the crystallographic c-axis. Lines are fits to a two-band WHH model.

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.
