New South Wales university (UNSW) announced that they completed and installed their new $1 million Vector Field Facility (VFF) equipment (which took them 5 years to develop and make). This is the world's largest cryogen-free vector magnet system. The VFF will be used to study and develop spintronic and quantum devices, quantum dots, self-assembled nanowires and more.

The VFF can enable very low temperature (0.01 degrees above absolute zero) and apply magnetic fields in any direction.
