High B/T Facility

Engineer working 16.7 T Magnet

Leading the world with the unique combination of high magnetic fields with ultra-low temperatures in a reduced electromagnetic noise environment.

The High B/T Facility supports researchers in realizing challenging experiments at the combined extremes of sub-mK temperatures and high magnetic fields. In addition, the ultra-quiet electromagnetic environment required to reach these temperatures is ideal for highly sensitive low noise measurements. Two demagnetization cryostats are available to all qualified users, with no prior experience in magnetic refrigeration required.
