Radboud University is a public University with a strong focus on research located in Nijmegen, the Netherlands. Established in 1923 and situated in the oldest city of the Netherlands, it has seven faculties and enrols over 19,130 students. Radboud University is a broad, international oriented university that aspires to be one of the best in Europe, creating an intellectual environment that inspires and challenges both the students and the staff so that they can extend the scope of academic disciplines and benefit society. Radboud University challenges its students to actively participate in the academic community and trains them to be critical and committed academics, with their own views regarding scholarship and society, who will take up responsible positions in a society which is becoming increasingly internationalised.
The High Field Magnet Laboratory is an international user facility dedicated to perform world-class research in high magnetic field. HFML is co-operated by Radboud University and the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) and is a founding member of the European High Magnetic Field Laboratory (EMFL). HFML is well equipped for full electronic, optical, magnetic and structural characterization of materials and to provide services related to its expertise.
