The Francis Bitter Magnet Laboratory is one of the worlds leading laboratories in the application of high magnetic fields to magnetic resonance and offers exciting research opportunities in several areas. Prominent among these are solid state NMR spectroscopy, imaging, NMR microscopy, quantum computing, high frequency EPR, gyrotron technology, condensed matter physics (semiconductors, superconductivity, liquid crystals) and high-temperature superconducting magnet technology. The Laboratory is also a world leader in the investigation of the quantum effects and other phenomena in atomically tailored materials (magnetic, superconducting and semiconducting films) at nanoscale with a view to understand the physics and materials aspect down to atomic level as well as with high potential for future digital storage application.
Safety: All Laboratory personnel, including students, are briefed on safety requirements and practices, and must sign a form stating that they have been briefed on safety and occupational hazards and responsibilities associated with the Laboratory and his/her group, and proposed program of work.
