Research Reports, published through 2018, are brief abstracts of experiments conducted at the MagLab.

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.

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.

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

This system offers 15.5 tesla at 4 K or 16.5 T at 1.2 K, and features 2 cm DSV experimental space.

Located in Bay 2 of the Microkelvin Laboratory, this system features a field strength of 8 tesla at 4 K or 10 tesla at 1.2 K. It has 3.2 cm DSV of experimental space.

Located in Williamson Hall Annex, this 10 tesla system features 2.5 cm DSV experimental space. This fast-turnaround facility is used for exploratory measurements, novel technique development, and sample/cell testing prior to use on Bays 2 and 3.

In pulsed fields, torque magnetometry is a highly sensitive technique for measuring magnetically anisotropic materials. The sample is mounted on a Piezoresistive AFM cantilever (120μm x 50 μm x 4 μm) made by Seiko to measure small deflections as the material experiences a torque, τ=MxB in an applied magnetic field.

AC magnetic susceptibility measures magnetic moment of a sample which is exposed to an oscillating external magnetic field.

In the pulse-echo ultrasonic technique, an ultrasound wave is excited and detected by two identical piezoelectric transducers (transmitter and receiver), which are glued to polished opposite sides of a sample.
