Workshop “Neutron scattering in Magnetic Fields above 15 Tesla"

In October 2014, the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB) brought together experts doing research in high magnetic fields with the focus on neutron scattering above 15 Tesla. This two-day workshop provided an information platform regarding the future use of the new high-field facility in Berlin capable of generating magnetic fields above 25 Tesla.

Workshop “Optical Properties of Individual Nanowires and Quantum Dots in High Magnetic Fields"

This event brought together two scientific communities that previously had surprisingly little overlap: On the one hand, these were scientists working on quantum dots (including colloidal quantum dots) and nanowires and on the other hand, physicists from the high magnetic field community, who have a long tradition in the investigation of epitaxial semiconductor nanostructures in high magnetic fields. For talks about those two main topics more than 20 renowned experts were invited.

In France, the 2013 national "Fête de la Science" took place from October 9 - 13. Every region programmed scientific outreach events, in which the LNCMI Grenoble and Toulouse took part. School classes had the opportunity to visit the labs during the week, and doors were open for the public on Saturday 12th.

Second EMFL 3to1 meeting: Sep 30 - Oct 2, 2013

With more than 150 participants, the second 3to1 EMFL days were again a great success. The meeting took place in Egmond, a village on the North Sea one hour from Amsterdam, The Netherlands. The purpose was to strengthen the EMFL‘s corporate identity among the personnel of the involved laboratories and to work together more efficiently.

Dresden Long Science Night  

On one Friday evening every summer, the Long Night of Science is held in Dresden. From 6 pm to 1 am, universities and non-university research institutions as well as scientifically inclined companies open their doors to the public. In 2013, the Dresden High Magnetic Field Laboratory could be found in the TU Dresden’s Lecture Center – with experiments that amazed and encouraged to participate, as well as presentations on fascinating scientific topics.

New magnetic field frontiers in atomic/molecular and solid-state physics

This workshop aimed to stimulate an exchange of expertise and new vision between researchers operating within two different areas : generation/application of very high magnetic fields, mainly in solid state physics, and frontier research in atomic and molecular physicists based on the application of large magnetic fields. Special care was devoted to discuss the impact of high magnetic field facilities on both research areas.

The HFML organized a route covering all parts of the building: the magnets, the labs, the power supply, and the cooling installations. Anyone interested was welcome to have a look into the lab. 

International workshop on High Magnetic Field Science and Technology

The objective of this workshop was to present a modern overview of Science and Technology at high magnetic fields. The meeting served to establish the needed technical coordination for future developments to perform experiments at high magnetic fields. It allowed for a more effective participation of Spanish laboratories in high magnetic field facilities. Users of high magnetic field facilities, in particular young students and post docs, were supported by waiving the workshop's registration fee.

First EMFL 3to1 meeting in France

In order to reach a first step in the creation of a corporate identity for the new EMFL among the personnel of the involved laboratories, a special “get to know each other” activity was organised in the South of France, in La Colle sur Loup, on October 4 and 5, 2011.

The main objectives were to present the individual founding laboratories and the plan towards forming a common EMFL, to meet and get to know the personnel of the other labs and to discuss the different working procedures. In an informal and enjoyable atmosphere, 150 staff members of the three structures spent two days presenting their work and their culture to each other.
