Synergetic Extreme Condition User Facility (SECUF) is a large research infrastructure built by the Institute of Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences and co-constructed by Jilin University. SECUF is designed to provide international top-class extreme experimental conditions such as extremely low temperature, strong magnetic field, ultra-high pressure, and ultra-fast light field for domestic and foreign users to conduct frontier research in material science such as material synthesis, physical characterization, quantum regulation, and ultra-fast processes. SECUF - Beijing part has been fully transferred to trial operation and opened for use by domestic and foreign users in early 2023. The first round of general proposal application for the year 2024 will be open to users on March 1st, 2024.
