Exploring Novel States of Materials in High Magnetic Fields

High Field Laboratory for Superconducting Materials (HFLSM) is the international COE of materials science in high magnetic fields. As the major instruments, hybrid magnets, cryogen-free superconducting magnets and conventional superconducting magnets are installed. HFLSM offers varieties of research opportunities for domestic and oversea users. HFLSM was established at 1981 to develop the superconducting wires for nuclear fusion reactor. Since then, it has contributed as the COE of materials science in steady high magnetic fields. From 2020, it forms the High Magnetic Field  Collaboratory Japan with other pulsed field facilities at the University of Tokyo and Osaka University. Researchers are investigating the properties of magnetic compounds, superconductors, semiconductors and alloys in high magnetic fields to develop the innovative materials and to uncover related mechanisms. The materials processing and crystal growth in high magnetic fields have been also conducted.
