The Laboratoire National des Champs Magnétiques Intenses (LNCMI, for the French National High Magnetic Field Laboratory) is a host laboratory for experiments in high magnetic fields. Based on two sites, the LNCMI offers static magnetic fields up to 35 T at its Grenoble site and pulsed magnetic fields up to 81 T using non-destructive magnets (and up to 180 T using single-shot magnets) at its Toulouse site. In addition to the technical developments and internal research carried out in the lab, experiment time is allocated to external researchers after submission of experiment proposals and their selection by an international commitee.
The mission and general orientation of the research at the LNCMI are:
The LNCMI is a Unité Propre de Recherche (UPR3228) from the CNRS. It is associated with the Institut National des Sciences Appliquées and the University Paul Sabatier of Toulouse, and the University Joseph Fourier of Grenoble.
