Dresden High Magnetic Field Laboratory User Program
Every year, the HLD welcomes dozens of user groups from all around the globe. We offer them excellent research facilities and qualified support.
The HLD has accepted proposals for magnet time and hosted users since the beginning of 2007. The coils available at the HLD produce both high magnetic fields (above 70 T with 150 ms pulse length) and smaller ones (60 – 65 T, with 25 – 50 ms pulse lengths). Pulsed magnets up to 100 T with 10 ms pulse length are under design.
In 2012, a record field close to 94,2 T has been reached. We are now accepting proposals for experiments up to 85 T. Energy for this is provided by a modular 50 MJ capacitor bank — the only of its kind in the world. The free-electron laser facility FELBE next door allows high-brilliance infrared radiation to be fed into the pulsed field cells of the HLD, thus enabling unique high-field magneto-optical experiments in the 4 to 250 µm range.
How to get magnet time
Proposals for experiments in pulsed high magnetic fields will be accepted in two turns a year. The submission deadlines are usually on May 15 and November 15 for the subsequent half-year measurement periods. The proposals are administrated and evaluated in the frame of the EMFL user program. In order to discuss details for the experiments, we recommend to contact the local staff of the HLD.
- For 2016 the spring/summer submission deadline is May 16!
Please use the application form for magnet time on the EMFL webpage.
