High B/T Facility

Bays 2 and 3 in the High B/T Facility Bays 2 and 3 in the High B/T Facility

The High B/T (magnetic field / temperature) Facility meets the needs of users who wish to conduct experiments in high magnetic fields (up to 15 tesla) and at very low temperatures (down to 0.4 mK) simultaneously. Located at the University of Florida in Gainesville, it is operated as part of the Physics Department's Microkelvin Laboratory. Faculty members in the facility work with users in the design of experiments where needed.

"The experiment … is my first time to collaborate with NHFML researchers and get machine time to perform AC susceptibility measurements at ultra-low temperatures. In this program, everything was going on well and we have not met any problems. The experimental results are also perfect. We hope to be able to have more chance to perform nice measurements in NHFML facilities."
