Abstract : A summary of work done at the National Magnet Laboratory, founded at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology by the Air Force Office of Scientific Research, is presented. The laboratory provides continuous magnetic fields of 255 kilogauss, 100 kilogauss stronger than available elsewhere. The number and variety of high field magnets and the ease and flexibility of their use are unequalled in the world. The fields of activity have included solid state, low temperature and plasma physics. Within these areas such phenomena as superconductivity, magneto-optical effects, cyclotron and magnetic resonance, and transport effects in metals, semimetals and semiconductors were investigated.
