User Facilities

User reading data from the 21 Tesla FT-ICR Magnet

Elevate your research at one of our seven user facilities offering the world's most powerful magnetic fields.

With seven user facilities located across three campuses, the MagLab is here to meet your high magnetic field research needs. Researchers range from graduate students to Nobel laureates and come from academia, national labs or industry to work with our unique, world-record instruments and experienced staff.

The MagLab exists for these users to conduct cutting-edge research - free of charge - to expand the boundaries of scientific knowledge and investigate interdisciplinary questions about promising new materials, energy solutions, environmental challenges and the biochemistry that underlies living things.
