National MagLab: The largest, highest powered magnet lab in the world


NSF's National High Magnetic Field Laboratory empowers scientific exploration in materials, energy and life

NSF's National High Magnetic Field Laboratory, or National MagLab, is a global destination for groundbreaking research across scientific disciplines. Nearly 2,000 scientists from around the world use MagLab's facilities each year, leveraging the power of high magnetic fields to explore new physical phenomena, develop materials for future generation technology, overcome energy challenges, and increase understanding of the human brain and life in general.

The research in this episode was supported by NSF grants #1644779, National High Magnetic Field Laboratory Renewal 2018-2022; #1462383, CAREER: Fractal Bandstructure by Superlattice Patterning; and #1420634, MRSEC: Columbia Center for Precision Assembly of Superstratic and Superatomic Solids.
