MCD Research Featured in Mag Lab's Annual Report

Professor Madalina Furis has demonstrated the first successful high-field Magnetic Circular Dichroism (MCD) experiment at 27.5 T in the Florida HELIX split-pair magnet. The measurements were performed on crystalline thin films of a prototypical organic semiconductor, copper phthalocyanine, revealing the onset of carrier-mediated exchange at low temperature. This research was selected as a Magnet Lab Annual Report Research Highlight (see related link).  Located in Tallahassee, Florida, the "Mag Lab" is the largest and highest-powered magnet laboratory in the world.
