Description of the Research Infrastructure

The only facility of its kind in the United States, the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory (National MagLab) is the largest and highest-powered magnet laboratory in the world. Funded by the National Science Foundation and the State of Florida, more than a thousand scientists come from around the globe each year to use our unique magnets, yielding more than 400 scientific publications in peer-reviewed journals such as Nature, Science and Physical Review Letters. Comprised of seven user facilities across three sites - Florida State University, the University of Florida and Los Alamos National Laboratory - the National MagLab offers a variety of tools and techniques for exploring physics, chemistry, biology and engineering in an interdisciplinary, collaborative environment. 

A broad range of fields are available to users of the NMR-MRI Facility with numerous capabilities for solid state NMR, imaging, and solution NMR. A magic-angle spinning Dynamic Nuclear Polarization (MAS-DNP) system is available for NMR signal enhancement of solids and Overhauser DNP for solution NMR is in development. A 1.5GHz NMR system, the highest in world, using the 36T series-connected hybrid magnet at the DC facility is open for access for materials and biosolids applications. Our 900MHz/105mm magnet that was designed and constructed by the MagLab and commissioned in 2004 is the highest NMR imaging system in the world. A team of engineers, technicians, and a machinist build state-of-the-art probes for solution and solid-state NMR spectroscopy as well as a wide range of MRI imaging probes and MRS probes for the unique, high-field NMR/MRI systems. These probes achieve unprecedented world-record performances under multiple criteria, attracting users from around the world to our facility that is open to researchers, their collaborators, and to those who want to require remote access for instrumentation use.


Access to the National MagLab website


The United States National High Magnetic Field Laboratory (the NHMFL) runs the most scientifically productive and multi-disciplinary magnets-based user program in the world. Its activities span materials research, condensed matter physics, magnet technology, biophysics, chemistry, and biology.

Spectrometers open to access

NHMFL will provide access to unique NMR spectrometers and probes, particularly the 600 MHz DNP NMR and the 1.5 GHz solid state NMR instruments.
