About HFML

The HFML is a unique international facility. We use and develop high magnetic fields for pioneering scientific research, carried out by our staff and external users. Fields up to 37.5 Tesla are available, a 45 Tesla hybrid magnet is under development.

We have a strong in-house research program, based around four major research themes and one technological theme.

External users can apply for magnet time. Twice a year there is a call for proposals (deadline May 15 and November 15).


Together with the magnet laboratories in Grenoble, Dresden and Toulouse we cooperate in the European Magnetic Field Laboratory (EMFL).
We are a partner of the European Magnetometry Network and the Global High Field Forum.
