The world's first 105mm bore, 900 MHz Nuclear Magnetic Resonance system was successfully ... World's First 105mm bore, 900 MHz Nuclear Magnetic Resonance System

The world's first 105mm bore, 900 MHz Nuclear Magnetic Resonance system was successfully commissioned on July 21, 2004, at the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory (NHMFL), a National Science Foundation-supported facility. In operation, the 16-foot-tall, 15-ton magnet sits inside a cryostat, which keeps the superconducting magnetic coils at a temperature of 1.7 degrees Kelvin.

The NHMFL, which opend 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)
