Research facilities

The IMM houses a multitude of advanced spectroscopic tools that allow for a detailed characterisation of matter in the nano-femto-domain, including the world-wide unique coupling of the free electron lasers laboratory FELIX to the high magnetic field laboratory (HFML) enabling far infrared experiments in high magnetic fields.

High Field Magnet Laboratory (HFML)

High Field Magnet Laboratory

The HFML is an international user facility and worldwide one of the few with continuous high magnetic fields up to 37.5 Tesla. In these magnets surprising material properties come to light, from crystal growth in gravitation-free environments to exotic quantum phases in topological materials.

FELIX Laboratory for free electron lasers


The FELIX Laboratory is an international user facility, exploiting several free electron lasers that can be precisely tuned in wavelength, energy and pulse time. The facility provides the world’s most complete coverage of the (far) infrared spectrum and is used in a broad range of fundamental research, from exploring the limits of fibre optics networks to determining the interactions of biological molecules.

Magnetic Resonance Research Center


The Magnetic Resonance Research Center is part of the uNMR-NL ROADMAP
infrastructure. The laboratory houses eight NMR spectrometers up to 850
MHz for both liquid- and solid-state NMR. Research involves the
optimization of sensitivity and information content of NMR spectra with
applications ranging from materials science to the analysis of complex

SPiN - Scanning Probe in Nijmegen- Laboratories

Scanning Probe Microscopy

The SPiN Laboratories house a broad range of instruments including scanning probe microscopes and atomic force microscopes. It is situated three floors underground and is optimised for ultralow noise measurements. The SPiN Laboratories are used to investigate structural, electronic and magnetic properties at the single atom scale.

Life Science Trace Gas Facility

Life Science Trace Gas Facility

The Life Science Trace Gas Facility operates a variety of unique state-of-the-art trace gas detectors that allow real time measurements at or below ppbv level of trace gases released by various biological samples in a seconds time scale. The application procedure is simple and straightforward.

Laser facilities & Clean Rooms

Clean Rooms

The Laser Laboratories include a large variety of femtosecond lasers and amplifiers, delivering pulses down to 35 fs with energies of up to 4 mJ; cw lasers from the uv to far-infrared, single-shot femtosecond Magneto Optical Kerr Effect Microscopy to matter in extremely non-equilibrium conditions, including ultrafast magnetization dynamics and single molecule-molecule collisions.
