The Dresden High Magnetic Field Laboratory (HLD) is under construction at the Forschungszentrum Rossendorf in Dresden, Germany [1, 2]. Along with in-house research, this laboratory is planned to provide external users with the possibility to carry out a variety of experiments in pulsed magnetic fields as high as 100 T. Typical pulse duration will be from 10 ms for a 100 T two-coil magnet up to 1000 ms for a 60 T long pulse magnet. Magnet bores will be in the range from 20 to 40 mm, providing adequate space for the experiments. The magnets will be energized by a world-wide unique modular 50 MJ capacitor bank operating at 24 kV. The design, development, and manufacture of pulsed magnets are established at the HLD. First coils using copper wire have repeatedly reached 64 T for 15 ms in a 24 mm bore. Currently these kinds of magnets are routinely used to provide 60 T. A multi-coil 100 T magnet is under design. Additionally, the HLD is being equipped with a number of superconducting magnets up to 20 T. A wide temperature range from mK to above room temperature will be available for research in high magnetic fields. A number of experimental techniques will be provided for users. This includes magneto-resistance, magnetization, specific-heat, ultrasound, and magnetic-resonance methods. The HLD is located nearby a free-electron-laser facility which is planned to deliver a high-brilliance infrared radiation (from 5 to 150 m wavelength) for infrared spectroscopy in pulsed magnetic field [3]. Besides, the HLD offers various equipment for sample preparation and characterization, such as SQUID systems and physical property measurement systems.
