The high-field muon instrument at ISIS, called HiFi, provides applied longitudinal fields up to 5T

No
​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The HiFi muon spectrometer. This has a 5T cryogen-free superconducting magnet
 

The magnet is a 5T superconducting split-pair, with high field homogeneity over the sample volume and actively compensated stray field.  It has additional z-axis coils up to 400​G for small changes to the main field (for example, for sweeping through level crossing resonances) as well as 100G x- and y-axis transverse coils for calibration measurements, etc. 

HiFi has the following sample environment equipment:


  • Dilution fridge (30mk - 300K)
  • 4He cryostat (1.5K - 300K)
  • Flow cryostat (4K - 400K)
  • CCR (10K - 600K)
  • Reflector furnace (300K- 1500K)

In particular, higher fields can:


  • Extend the range of accessible fluctuations, correlations, diffusion and dynamics across a broad range of systems;
  • Give access to new regions of magnetic phase diagrams and allow state preparation in, for example, frustrated systems;

  • Give access to more level crossing resonances, many of which are in the 0.5 to 2T range, for spectroscopy and molecular dynamics studies;

  • Open up the full range of nuclei for RF-decoupling techniques.
