A 40 T class hybrid magnet system, built at the National Research Institute for Metals, Japan, has been used to measure the transport properties of organic conductors, η-MoO11, etc. A Fourier-transform spectrometer in the milli-to submillimeter range has been developed using a lamellar grating, and has been used in magneto-optical studies of the spin-Peierls oxide CuGeO3. Fermi surfaces have been investigated extensively using a 16 T magnet with a dilution refrigerator, and de Haas-van Alphen oscillations were clearly observed in the mixed state, as well as in the normal state for YNi2B2C crystals. Magnetization measurements have been performed on the hexagonal intermetallic compound RPd2Al3 using pulsed magnetic fields. The present status of the high-field magnets and the experimental results obtained at the NRIM are described.
