Workshop: HIgh MAgnetic Fields for FUNdamental Physics (HIMAFUN), 29 & 30. May 2017

Organized by Prof. Dmitry Budker (HIM), Dr. Geert Rikken (University of Toulouse III), Prof. Carlo Rizzo (University of Toulouse III)
Laboratoire National des Champs Magnétiques Intenses – Toulouse, France

High magnetic fields are a very important tool for investigating matter properties. In particular, their impact in fundamental physics is astonishing. They constitute the base of instrumentation like
accelerators and particle detectors. They are also a unique probe to test fundamental particles properties like in the case of the electron magnetic anomalous moment and in more general terms to test Quantum Electrodynamics in bound systems and in vacuum. Physics beyond the standard model also needs high magnetic fields to answer questions still open as in the case of axion and axionlike particle search.
Our “high magnetic fields for fundamental physics” workshop covers a large range of domains from magnetic field metrology to laboratory astrophysics passing through particle physics and tests of
fundamental interactions.
The goal of our workshop is to gather scientist involved in fundamental physics in strong magnetic fields and engineers developing magnets to impulse new projects and to improve the mutual understanding of the technical and scientific points in order to federate this community.
