Dresden High Magnetic Field Laboratory (HLD)

The Dresden High Magnetic Field Laboratory (HLD) in the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf focuses on modern materials research at high magnetic fields. It serves as a research facility for both in-house and user projects and provides research opportunities for pulsed magnetic fields up to 90 Tesla for routine operation. A record field close to 94.2 T has been reached in 2012. The HLD aims at reaching magnetic fields up to the feasibility limit of about 100 Tesla.

The local research interests are: 

  • Magnetic and superconducting materials
  • Strongly correlated electron systems
  • Low-dimensional magnetic materials
  • Nanostructured materials

Capacitor Bank at HLD (picture: HZDR)The HLD was expanded as an international user center. From 2011 to 2013, it had been equipped with a new capacitor bank and additional magnetic cells to meet the great demand for measurement times in ultrahigh pulsed magnetic fields.
