The DC Field Facility contains nine resistive magnets ranging in strength up to 45 tesla connected to a 56 MW DC power supply and 15,000 square feet of cooling equipment. All of our resistive magnets support the following research: magneto-optics (ultra-violet through far infrared), magnetization, specific heat, transport, high pressure, low to medium resolution NMR in highest fields, EMR, temperatures from 40 mK to 800 K, dependence of optical and transport properties on field orientation, and more.
The Magnet Lab has embarked on innovative projects to develop unique hybrid magnet systems. This is novel because a set of Florida-Bitter resistive coils (insert) and a set of superconducting cable-in-conduit conductor (CICC) coils (outsert) are driven in series with the same power supply, rather than independently.
This standard 20 MW solenoid magnet produces 31 tesla in a 50-mm bore. This magnet usually has an advanced cryogenic system installed providing temperatures from 300 K to 300 mK.
This 50 ppm unshimmed high-homogeneity resistive magnet provides a 32-mm bore available for medium resolution NMR. A helium-3 cryogenic system allows experiments down to 500 mK.
The Split-Florida Helix (SFH) magnet is the first modern powered magnet optimized for advanced optical spectroscopy techniques requiring wide, free-space access to samples.
