Science Highlights: Magnetic Field Induced Polarization in a Bose Glass State

The High B/T (magnetic field / temperature) Program in Gainesville is operated as part of the Microkelvin Laboratory, which is located in the Physics Department at the University of Florida. The facility is designed to meet the needs of users who wish to conduct experiments in high magnetic fields (up to 15 T) and at very low temperatures (down to 0.4 mK) simultaneously. Faculty members in the facility work with users in the design of experiments where needed. Instrumentation is available for studies of:

  • magnetization
  • thermodynamic quantities
  • transport properties
  • magnetic resonance
  • viscosity
  • diffusion
  • ultrasound propagation
  • superfluid density
  • capacitance
  • pressure

The facility is housed in an ultra-quiet environment with electromagnetic shielding and vibration isolation of the experimental station to permit high sensitivity measurements.
