The European Magnetic Field Laboratory

The EMFL develops and operates world class high magnetic field facilities, to use them for excellent research by in-house and external users.

The European Magnetic Field Laboratory (EMFL) was founded in 2015 and provides the highest possible fields (both continuous and pulsed) for its researchers. The EMFL is dedicated to unite, coordinate and reinforce the four existing European high magnetic field laboratories – within a single body as a world-leading infrastructure:

  • The Dresden High Magnetic Field Laboratory (Germany),

  • The Laboratoire National des Champs Magnétiques Intenses in Grenoble and Toulouse (France)

  • The High Field MAGNET Laboratory in Nijmegen (Netherlands).

HIGH MAGNETIC FIELDS ARE ONE OF THE MOST POWERFUL TOOLS AVAILABLE TO SCIENTISTS FOR THE STUDY, THE MODIFICATION AND THE CONTROL OF THE STATE OF MATTER.

European Magnetic Field Laboratory (EMFL) generate the highest possible magnetic fields for use in scientific research and make them available to the scientific community.

The forces acting within the EMFL magnets are incredibly powerful. In a strong magnetic field of about 100 teslas, the magnetic force inside the conductor would generate a pressure that equals 40,000 times the air pressure at sea level. However, one should always bear in mind that these magnets are research tools and that their utility doesn’t depend exclusively on the field strength. Other factors such as pulse duration and bore size are also important for realizing state-of-the-art high-field measurements.

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.

FARADAY BALANCE MAGNETOMETER AT LNCMI-G

Gabriel Seyfarth, LNCMI Grenoble. A new Faraday-balance magnetometer for low temperatures and high magnetic fields has been developed at LNCMI Grenoble. It has been designed to probe the sample magnetization. The determination of absolute values is possible via separate calibration measurements.
