The blue Oxford dewar is a general purpose liquid helium 4 dewar used with the DC Field resistive 50 mm bore magnets.
Although the absolute sensitivity of this 24-660 GHz transmission device is lower than that of the quasi-optical system, samples for the transmission apparatus may be very large (0.5 mL and above), thus offsetting the sensitivity disadvantage. The instrument is coupled to a 15/17 T superconducting magnet.
Several broadband (continuous from 8 GHz to 1 THz) instruments based on MVNA spectrometers have been configured for high-sensitivity oriented single-crystal measurements, enabling EPR studies simultaneously as a function of field orientation, pressure and temperature.
The DC Field Facility has the capability to measure low resistances samples in continuous fields up to 45 T. Most of the standard laboratory electronics that users have experience with for lower field measurements are available at the MagLab, including lock-in amplifiers, current sources and pre-amplifiers.
Dozens of measurement techniques can be performed at the MagLab's seven user facilities, many at multiple facilities.
Fast and high pulsed magnetic fields at the Pulsed Field Facility allow very sensitive measurements of multiferroic properties, in particular the electric polarization as function of magnetic field down to fractions of a pC/cm2.

Resources for Grad Students & Postdocs
We support the professional and career development of early-career scientists during their time at the lab.
The MagLab has a strong commitment to education. Through the Center for Integrating Research & Learning (CIRL), the lab provides educational programming at all academic levels: K-12, technical, undergraduate, graduate and postdoctoral.
The high school externship is for students who are participating in their school’s externship program. Only students that are registered in the externship course through their school will be allowed to participate.
A 10-week experience for middle-schoolers living in Leon County, Tallahassee.
Each year we host a variety of camp programs that engage students in STEM fields.
Teachers can plan a field trip to the lab or have a MagLab educator visit their class.
A six-week summer program that gives teachers the chance to do real-world research.
If you are looking for ways to broaden your physical science lesson plans, then the MagLab Educators Club is for you.

The contactless Surface Acoustic Wave (SAW) technique is implemented to probe the high-frequency conductivity in low dimensional (2D) structures, by measuring the SAW attenuation and velocity.
FDMR is a version of Electron Magnetic Resonance (EMR) that depends on sweeping the frequency instead of magnetic field, as is the standard in EMR.
The physics of cyclotron resonance (CR) and angle-dependent magneto-resistance oscillations (AMRO - See DC Transport) in low-dimensional metals is the same
