16 NOBEL PRIZES IN PHYSICS, CHEMISTRY, AND MEDICINE ARE CLOSELY LINKED TO MAGNETIC FIELD RESEARCH.
High magnetic field experiments are the ideal way to gain insights into the matter that surrounds us. Magnetic fields allow for the systematic manipulation and control of material properties – which is why these kinds of experiments are conducted on new materials so that their fundamental properties can be explored and so that they can be optimised for future application.
Very commonly, materials research provides the basis for innovations that help boost the economy while offering clean technology solutions to problems we are finding ourselves faced with in today’s world. Think only of energy-efficient data storage, solar cells, sensors – the list goes on.
