Femke Bangma researched materials with magnetic and super-conductive qualities at HFML. To conduct her research, she created her own components for the experimental design, became an expert in the techniques for reaching milliKelvin temperatures, and learned how to combine this with the use of extremely strong magnetic fields. The experimental design that Femke developed with her colleagues has become part of the HFML facility, and can be used by physicists visiting Nijmegen from around the world. Her research also led to follow-up projects.
