Lay summary
Ultra-low temperatures and flexible magnetic fields are at the heart of a range of fascinating research topics in condensed matter physics. With a number of groups at EPFL working in the areas of spintronics, magnetization dynamics, quantum magnetism and optomechanical systems, a joint installation is being set up to fill the needs of these groups.This project will implement a state of the art facility combining ultra-low temperatures and precise directionally controlled magnetic fields for experimental investigations. The setup is devised to be flexible to allow for different types of measurements including low temperature DC and high frequency transport, high sensitivity magnetometry and others.
