Applied Magnetics Laboratory

Lab Overview

At the Applied Magnetics Laboratory (AML), staff focuses on the discovery, development and characterization of magnetic materials and devices. Much of the work here is academic in nature—and it’s a little mysterious.

Researchers have access to a clean room, a microwave laboratory, a machine shop and numerous advanced and unique tools ranging from arbitrary waveform generators to systems for ion beam sputtering. The staff can help with research, consult on magnetic designs, perform measurements and analyze data too.

Whether you need a special, new magnetic thin film or a pole piece design for your giant generator, the staff at AML can make it happen.
