  Low Temperature and High Magnetic Field Laboratory

This laboratory is a scientific infrastructure comprising different instruments dedicated to studies and materials characterization and solid state physics studies under extreme conditions of low temperature (down to 0.3K) and high magnetic fields (up to 18T), with emphasis on electrical transport, magnetic and thermal properties.

The use of these instruments is open to external users upon application (Dr. Manuel de Almeida) or on a scientific collaborative basis. Some simple measurements can be also provided as a service. In the absence of a national funding programme the external users are expected to cover liquid helium consumption and other operational costs.
