User Program



Jon Betts



The NHMFL-PFF at Los Alamos National Laboratory operates an international user program for research in high magnetic fields. This user program is funded by the National Science Foundation, and access to all NHMFL magnets is open to all scientists via a competitive proposal process.


Our pulsed magnets and experimental capabilities are unique to the world and our ability to produce cutting-edge science is a major attraction for LANL visitors.


The pulsed field user program provides researchers with a balance of the highest magnetic fields and robust scientific diagnostics. The pulsed field facility is home to a wide variety of experimental capabilities. The facility - with both long-pulse and short-pulse magnets - is equipped for experiments such as magneto-transport and magneto-optics, hall measurements, high field spectroscopy, magnetization and susceptibility, resonance ultrasound, and more.
