Dr. Janice Musfeldt, Professor of Chemistry, was elected Chair of the Users Committee of the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory, effective January 2011.
Established by the National Science Foundation Cooperative Agreement, the NHMFL’s Users Committee represents the laboratory’s broad multidisciplinary user community and advises the lab’s leadership on all issues affecting users of the facilities.
Musfeldt joined the faculty in 2001. Since then, she has made many contributions to the field of spectroscopy of materials under extreme conditions. She is particularly well known for forwarding high magnetic field spectroscopies of complex solids, although she is also interested in low temperature, high pressure, small size, and frustration effects in functional materials. Her scientific work is extensively cited, and she is in great demand as an invited speaker. Musfeldt serves the materials community via extensive conference, school, and workshop organization.
