How to ship equipment and samples to the MagLab's Pulsed Field Facility at LANL:

  • Always address the shipment to your point of contact. Otherwise, the LANL mail distribution system is unable to deliver the shipment.
  • Forward the delivery notification from the shipper to your POC so we can follow up at LANL.
  • Please be sure that samples are properly labeled (material, owner, ideally proposal number). If there are special handling instructions, please discuss with the instrument scientist PRIOR to shipment and document them within your shipment.
  • If the samples are radioactive, they MUST be shipped as radioactive materials.
  • If your experiment requires markings on the sample, e.g., to designate the sample orientation during the experiment, please provide markings that cannot be lost (e.g., electric discharge machining marks, scratches, etc.) and indicate how your sample should be mounted. This is especially important for mail-in samples that need to be oriented by the instrument scientist without the user.
