MagLab nets $4.2M NSF grant to launch next-generation superconducting magnets

The National Science Foundation (NSF) has awarded $4.2 million to the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory to launch a research and development effort for the next generation of high-field superconducting magnets. Headquartered at Florida State University in Tallahassee, the National MagLab is already home to a dozen world-record magnets. Every year, more than 1,800 scientists […]

National MagLab’s latest magnet snags world record, marks new era of scientific discovery

The Florida State University-headquartered National High Magnetic Field Laboratory has shattered another world record with the testing of a 32-tesla magnet — 33 percent stronger than what had previously been the world’s strongest superconducting magnet used for research and more than 3,000 times stronger than a small refrigerator magnet. On Dec. 8, this new magnet […]

National MagLab achieves new world record with strongest resistive magnet

New 41.4-Tesla Instrument Paves Way for Breakthroughs in Physics and Materials Research While the rest of the country watched the solar eclipse Monday, engineers at the Florida State University-headquartered National MagLab pulled off an eclipse of a different sort. Not to be outdone by celestial events, they set a new world record that blotted out […]

MagLab director named to American Academy of Arts and Sciences

Until recently, Greg Boebinger counted on three fingers the high points of his career: earning three bachelor’s degrees (simultaneously); snagging a job at storied Bell Laboratories as a young physicist; and becoming director of the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory, headquartered at Florida State University. But this week brought news that now requires an extra […]
