The NHMFL was established in 1990 with support from the National Science Foundation and the state of Florida and is a collaboration between the University of Florida, Florida State University, and Los Alamos National Laboratory. The laboratories in Florida provide users access to continuous field magnets, including a 45-T hybrid magnet; they constitute the world’s largest magnet laboratory. In addition to an active research program in static high magnetic fields, there is an extensive program in NMR, ICR, EMR, and other advanced high-field magnetic resonance research. The continuous-field magnet facility, the Center for Interdisciplinary Magnetic Resonance, and the geochemistry facilities are located on the main campus in Tallahassee; the high B/T (magnetic field/temperature) and the magnetic resonance/imaging spectroscopy facilities are located in Gainesville.
The laboratory at Clark University focuses on organic conductors and the effects of high magnetic fields on their properties. On-campus magnets include 5-T continuous-field magnets and a 50-T (11-ms) pulsed-field facility. The focus of the instrumentation available is cryogenic equipment that can be used in high pulsed field environments, such as plastic cryostats.
