Other In-House Research
The labís long-range planning includes enhancements to user programs, both for high field research and related fields. The programs featured on this page complement and help extend the capabilities of existing programs.
The Cryogenics Group performs research and development projects involving very low temperature science and technology. This work is important to the Magnet Lab because many magnets, including superconducting magnets, operate at temperatures below ambient, which they need in order to carry high electrical currents.
Research in the geochemistry program is centered around the use of trace elements and isotopes to understand the Earth processes and environment.
This group creates and maintains leading Web sites on optical microscopy, conducts biological research and creates photomicrographs of amazing detail.
