Scientific Description
The High Field Magnet Laboratory (HFML) in Nijmegen is specialised in producing the highest continuous magnetic fields, using them for innovative research and making them available for external users. 33T magnets are available, a 38T resistive magnet and a 45T hybrid magnet are under development. HFML is coordinator of the FP7-project Creation of a distributed European Magnetic Field Laboratory (EMFL).
