User Magnet Time Requests

Access to NHMFL magnets is open to all scientists via a competitive proposal process, and all user facilities accept proposals throughout the year from new and returning users.

To request magnet time, follow the steps below.

Recommended for NEW Users

Returning Users

  • Did you know you can add an experiment by clicking "Duplicate" on the experiment page and only need to adjust the dates and attach the prior results file?

How to Request Magnet Time:



A proposal is required for magnet time requests in all facilities. It must be uploaded as one (1) PDF file (not separate sections) and must include the following:

  • Up to 3 page description of the proposed science and/or technology development, including broader impacts of the work.
  • Up to 1 page description of the previous relevant work.
  • 2 page Biographical Sketch of PI (Bio-Sketch Template).

Prior Results Report:

Users applying for the DC Field facility need to prepare a Prior Results Report. This needs to be uploaded during the online experiment submission process only. We prefer that you use our report template.
