- Promote magnet-related research to serve an interdisciplinary scientific user community spanning materials science, condensed matter physics, magnet technology, chemistry, and biology.
- Provide unique high-magnetic-field facilities through a competitive and transparent proposal review process.
- Advance magnet and magnet-related technology via high-risk, high-reward projects.
- Partner with universities, other national laboratories and industry to enhance national competitiveness in magnet and related technologies.
- Serve the NSF as a prominent example of its successful stewardship of large research facilities.
- Serve as a successful model as
- a multi-site national laboratory
- a collaboration among our three partner institutions: Florida State University (FSU), the University of Florida (UF) and Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL)
- a partnership of the federal and state government
- a partnership of the National Science Foundation and the Department of Energy
- Support science and technology education in the United States.
- Increase diversity in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics workforce of today and tomorrow.
We focus on four objectives to implement these goals:
- Develop a wide range of user facilities and services for magnet-related research at the frontiers of science that are open to all qualified scientists and engineers
- Advance magnet and magnet materials technology in cooperation with industry
- Promote a stimulating multidisciplinary research environment and administer a high-quality in-house research program that uses and advances the facilities
- Develop an extensive educational outreach program that capitalizes on the unique resources of the lab in order to address national needs in science, research, technology and related fields.
