In the *Laboratory for measurements at large-scale user facilities*, we study materials with experimental techniques that are only accessible in a handful of places worldwide and are invaluable as they complement the experiments that can be done at the “Jožef Stefan” Institute. Since 2008, we have had 89 projects accepted by the large-scale user facilities.

A short introduction to our experimental and numerical methods (.pptx)

Experimental techniques:

- muon spin spectroscopy
- neutron diffraction
- inelastic neutron scattering
high-field electron spin resonance
