Toshihiro Nomura* and Sergei Zherlitsyn, HLD Dresden. A quartz-crystal microbalance (QCM) is an ultrasensitive device to detect changes of the mass. When an external mass is coupled to the surface of the quartz micromembrane, the resonance frequency f0 of the QCM decreases. Owing to the high quality factor, Q, [...]
Jung-bin Song, X. Chaud, F. Debray, LNCMI-Grenoble and P. Fazilleau, T. Lécrevisse, CEA Saclay. The High Temperature Superconductor (HTS) team at LNCMI has set a new world record by producing a magnetic field of 32.5 T for a period of several minutes. With this, EMFL is paving the way [...]
Xavier Chaud, LNCMI Grenoble. The development of high-temperature superconductor (HTS) inserts for all superconducting magnets for fields above 23 T is highly desirable. With practically zero power consumption this will make possible long-duration experiments at a low operation cost and will be greatly beneficial for physics, chemistry, and live [...]
In the beginning of March 2018, a major milestone in the development of the 45 T hybrid magnet at HFML in Nijmegen has been achieved with the completion of the superconducting coil for the outsert magnet. The building process of the coil, with an outer diameter of 1.2 meter, [...]
A 40-T pulsed magnet for single crystal elastic neutron scattering, featuring an unprecedented high duty cycle, now offers new opportunities to investigate magnetic systems down to 2 K at the Institut Laue Langevin (ILL) in Grenoble (France).
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.
Lisa Rossi, Lijnis Nelemans, Ben Bryant, HFML Nijmegen. Together with technicians and scientists from HFML Nijmegen, PhD student Lisa Rossi designed and built a scanning probe microscope (SPM) for operation at cryogenic temperatures in extremely high magnetic fields. It is the only one in the world that can measure in fields above 30 Tesla.
Jérôme Béard, LNCMI-Toulouse On February 10, 2017, the LNCMI team in Toulouse has managed to generate, non-destructively, 98.8 T as shown in Figure 1. To obtain this result it was necessary to combine three independent concentric coils, shown in Figure 2, energized by the three main capacitor [...]
William Knafo, LNCMI-Toulouse, Daniel Braithwaite, CEA-Grenoble, Rikio Settai, University of Niigata Combined extreme conditions of high pressure and strong magnetic field are an extremely powerful tool to tune microscopic interactions in order to attain and study new states of matter. While high-pressure measurements in static magnetic fields [...]
Sylvie George, Nicolas Bruyant, Jérôme Béard, Stefano Scotto, Ennio Arimondo, Remy Battesti, Donatella Ciampini, Carlo Rizzo We have realized a new technique to measure pulsed magnetic fields based on the use of rubidium in the gas phase as a metrological standard. For that, we have developed a [...]
