Magnet/UV/RF

This program applies to equipment that radiates static or time-varying magnetic fields. Examples include MRI (magnetic resonance imagining), SQUID (superconducting quantum interface device), NMR (nuclear magnetic resonance) spectrometers, particle accelerators, etc. If you are introducing new equipment to the lab that generates magnetic fields, please contact askEHS@cornell.edu. It may be necessary to map the safe boundary for medical implants like pacemakers, or take steps to prohibit magnetizable objects from the space to prevent them from becoming missiles in stronger fields.
