This Nuclear Magnetic Resonance magnet at the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory

June 2, 2010
This Nuclear Magnetic Resonance magnet at the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory (NHMFL)--shown during assembly--produces a 21.1 Tesla field in a cylindrical region 105 millimeters in diameter. It is the largest-bore 900 MHz magnet in the world.

The NHMFL--established by the National Science Foundation in 1990--develops and operates high magnetic field facilities that scientists use for research in physics, biology, bioengineering, chemistry, geochemistry, biochemistry, materials science and engineering. It is the only facility of its kind in the United States and one of only nine in the world. It is the largest and highest powered magnet laboratory, outfitted with the world's most comprehensive assortment of high-performing magnet systems.

The NHMFL is operated by Florida State University, the University of Florida and Los Alamos National Laboratory, and is supported by NSF and the state of Florida. [See Related Image.] (Year of image: 2002)
