12 Tesla Magnet Installation

July 9, 2009.


The group has temporary laboratory space on the first floor of "B-block" in the chemistry department. While the laboratory space is not yet ready for full habitation, the 12 Tesla magnet has been installed by lifting it with a hoist through a (removed) window. The next step is to start unpacking all the boxes and building the instrument!
