3. Can we use a proposal approved by DC Field and add an EMR experiment in order to use EMR's magnet systems?
The cost is paid by the National Science Foundation for all qualified users who agree and follow our terms and conditions, which include writing a research report that is disseminated publicly. Independently funded users have to pay for using magnets. For more details about the process and fees, please contact the applicable facility director.
Independently-funded users do not have to submit a proposal. Every other user must to go through the proposal submission process and will find his/her new, submitted, reviewed and/or inactive proposals under the Proposal tab after login to the user system.
6. Does being a Submitter on a proposal or experiment automatically make me a Collaborator on the proposal or experiment?
No, each collaborator must be explicitly added to the proposal or experiment even if they are also the submitter.
Yes, each proposal expires automatically three years after it is approved. After the expiration date, a new proposal will need to be submitted to the MagLab to continue the work.
It should have enough detail to describe the research but be broad enough to cover experiments for three years.
The proposal should include a title, PI name, and a CV.
It should be in NSF format, which can be found in column 2-f.
No. It is only required for the principal investigator (PI).
It should be included in the PDF that will be uploaded under 'Attach Proposal'.
The MagLab abides by all rules, regulations and reviews of the Florida State University Animal Care and Use Committee.
No. Everyone must register to establish a login for the User & Faculty Reporting system separately from the User System.
16. How do I cite the MagLab in publications, presentations, or other activities or products resulting from use of MagLab facilities?
Include this statement: “A portion of this work was performed at the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory, which is supported by National Science Foundation Cooperative Agreement No. DMR-1157490 and the State of Florida.”
- Log in to the User System.
- On your user profile, click “Edit” and revise the information as needed.
- To save your changes, click “Update”.
The status of the NEW experiment changes to ‘SUBMITTED’ and a confirmation email is sent to the principal investigator and submitter.
If the experiment is still in the NEW status, the submitter can delete the experiment himself/herself by clicking on ‘DELETE’ under ‘EXPERIMENT ACTIONS’. If the experiment is already in ‘SUBMITTED’ status, the submitter must provide the consent of the PI and contact the facility director to request the deletion.
If the proposal is still in the NEW status, the submitter can delete the proposal himself/herself by clicking on 'DELETE' under 'ACTIONS'. If the proposal is already in ‘SUBMITTED’ status, the submitter will need to provide the consent of the PI and contact the facility director to request the deletion.
The system allows you to submit a second experiment at a different facility ONLY when the proposal is at least in 'Submitted' status. To add an experiment to a different facility, the submitter will have to duplicate a previously submitted experiment and change the facility under ‘Edit’ of that newly duplicated experiment.
5. When submitting a proposal, an up to one page description of the previous relevant work must be included. Does this refer to relevant work done by PI or is this relevant work done by others in the field?
It can be either or a combination of both. For instance, if a PI has data to 9 T and there is a publication on a compound that is related to the one the PI intends to study at the MagLab, the PI can use data from his/her work and the publication. For future magnet time requests (experiments) submitted under this proposal, the PI would include a 1 page prior results document that would focus on the results the PI had obtained during his/her previous visit to the MagLab.
The facility manager will check the "New PI" classification box before the review process of the proposal starts.
The 1 page description of the previous relevant work relates to the proposal that is valid up to 3 years and should address work that has been done in that field — related results from papers on similar samples.
The prior result report requirement is linked to the specific experiment, which should refer to specific work you and your colleagues have done — i.e. MagLab results of colleague on different samples.
After approval of your MagLab proposal, you will receive notice from the AMRIS Director. Our Administrative office is copied to coordinate the generation of an AMRIS Billing Code, which you may then select in the Reservation Request form.
The answer depends on which system the data was collected from.
For the 500, 600, Cryo600 and the 750 instruments, the data should be transferred to the datastation after collection via the cross-mounted network. From the data station the data may be transferred via ftp using filezilla.
For the horizontal 4.7T and the 11T systems, you may ftp directly from the system.
- Solution NMR – 500, 600s, 750
- Solid state NMR – 500, 600 and 750
- MR microscopy – 600 and 750
- Animal imaging – 4.7T, 11.1T, 750, and 3T (large animals)
- Human imaging – Philips 3T
Yes. Please contact Huadong Zeng for specific requirements. The University of Florida Animal Care Services coordinates all imports/exports of animals.
Please bring your own anesthetics and analgesics as specified in your IACUC protocol. Our users use isoflurane regularly as an anesthetic so AMRIS provides air/oxygen gas and an isoflurane evaporator.
Please refer to the AMRIS Users System Guide
The DC Field User Facility schedules magnet time three times per year; please check Magnet Schedule - DC Field page and find DC/PFF Magnet Schedule and Deadlines on this page to find out when the next applications for magnet time are due.
Contact one of the scientists listed below and we'll help you choose the right instrument for your experiment/proposal.
There are no deadlines or time windows for EMR proposals.
The design of the experimental cell is crucial in order to be certain the sample can be cooled to ultra-low temperatures. As soon as a proposal is approved, the principal investigator should contact High B/T staff and work on the design of the experimental cell. Only on rare occasions will an existing cell be usable.
At any time.
No; it is supported by core National MagLab grant.
We recommend the Reitz Union Hotel in the center of campus, which provides parking. There is a food court in the same building.

The ICR Laser Policy begins with the initial assignment of online safety training that allows access to the ICR labspace.
Anyone working in the ICR high bay must first answer the following question in the Safety Training Portal: "Are you working or will work in the ICR High bay?"
ALL ICR Staff, graduate students, postdocs and ICR facility users/visitors (including REUs) are then automatically assigned the following online training courses:
1. General Safety Training
2. High Magnetic Field Training
3. Laser Safety Training 4. Cryogens
5. Compressed Gas
A Laser Binder has been created and stored in the ICR High Bay that includes:
- Laser Standard Operating Procedures
- Laser OJT Training Forms
- Laser Specifications
- Online Safety training certificates for all Laser users.
- All ICR Lab Spaces (NM 117, NM 137, NM 113, B239, B240, C 330) require Safety Glasses AT ALL TIMES. Signage was purchased and posted.
- No food or drink is permitted inside any ICR lab space. Designated drinking area was - approved by NHMFL Safety for NM 113 (ICR High Bay).
- Card Reader access only to ICR personnel to ICR High Bay.
- Restricted Card Reader access to 21 T High Bay
- Occupied Labs : Doors Unlocked
- Unoccupied Labs: Doors Locked
Nuclear Magnetic Resonance.
First discuss your project with the appropriate NMR faculty or staff member:
1. How often does the Pulsed Field Facility (PFF) in Los Alamos National Lab (LANL) schedule experiments?
The PFF User Facility schedules magnet time three times per year; please check Magnet Schedule - Pulsed Field page and find DC/PFF Magnet Schedule and Deadlines on this page to find out when the next applications for magnet time are due.
Through the user portal like any other magnet request. 100 T magnet time is in high demand and the expectation is that sample screening and verification is done earlier on 65T pulsed magnets.
Yes, so long as you complete all of the required training and are authorized by the Safety Responsible Line Manager (Chuck Mielke).
No. Users and staff must complete the LANL training programs.
Yes, when you arrive we will give you access credentials to access the LANL visitor network.
No, only LANL approved cameras and authorized individuals may take photographs at LANL and the LANL Security Responsible Line Manager (Chuck Mielke) must review and release the images to you.
Yes. However, the camera may not be used at any LANL site (including the NHMFL-PFF).
Most people suggest the "Chile Works" on Trinity Drive, however the "Sunrise Bakery" on Diamond makes several great BBs. For a sit down BB you should try "Viola's" on Trinity. The Huevos Rancheros are also a must while you visit the other LA.
