The strongest, quietest steady and slowly varying magnetic fields in the world.
Home to 14 magnets, powered by 56 megawatts and spanning more than 15,000 square feet, the DC Field Facility offers researchers the unparalleled combination of the strongest, quietest magnetic fields in the world, coupled with state-of-the-art instrumentation and experimental expertise.
The research is supported by magnet plant and cryogenic system operators and technicians who design, build and repair instruments for user research. More than two dozen world-class research faculty work directly with users to get the best measurements and data.

Our magnets are open to all scientists - for free - via a competitive process and we accept proposals through out the year.
A proposal and prior results report are required.
Upload files and provide details about the proposed experiment.
After your work is completed, you are asked to report to the laboratory, in a timely manner.
Note: Review the email sent by DC Field Coordinator, sent approximately one week prior to your magnet time for schedule information, user badge/key pick-up instructions.
Note: The schedule is subject to changes due to holidays or maintenance.
