High magnetic field facilities provide unique experimental conditions to a multidisciplinary community of researchers, require a high level of unique technical and scientific expertise to operate, and need major capital investments to stay at the forefront of research.
High magnetic fields are critically important for groundbreaking research in materials science, chemistry and biology. Powerful magnets also play a key role in large accelerators, on the path to achieving controlled nuclear fusion and in finding energy solutions. Research across the Global HiFF labs enables discoveries that could have exciting applications in the development of new technologies and more powerful health care diagnostic tools.
