Cell Set-Up


The NHMFL User facility is arranged with separate cells in which researchers can conduct their pulsed field measurements. Each cell includes the necessary experimental equipment from the magnet and cryostat to the data acquisition instruments. The pages in this section include information on how to set up your sample before attaching it to a probe, how the probe fits in the cryostat and how to use data acquisition software.

The following is a basic layout of the user area within the laboratory. Additional work areas and computers are located in the hall outside of each cell for monitoring data acquisition during a magnetic pulse.
