NRC Committee Requests Imput from High Magnetic Field Science Community

A new National Academies committee is requesting input on the current state of high magnetic field science. The Committee on Opportunities in High Magnetic Field Science (COHMAG) will produce a report on the facilities for experiments at high magnetic fields (above 12T), the current state and scientific opportunities of the disciplines that use high field magnets, and the prospects for advances in related technologies.

COHMAG invites comments on the following: how have high magnetic fields had an impact on research directions? How have the facilities at NHMFL or other high-field magnet centers been of use? What new facilities or new capabilities would be most valuable? In what new areas of research are high magnetic fields likely to have a large impact? Comments should be sent to: cohmag@nas.edu.
