Synergetic Extreme Condition User Facility

The Synergetic Extreme Condition User Facility is a national major science facility. After completion, it will be an international advanced user facility integrating extreme conditions such as ultrahigh pressure, ultralow temperature, strong magnetic fields, and ultrafast optical fields. It aims to expand the space for research into physical sciences, facilitate the discovery of new states of matter, new phenomena and new rules, strengthen China's research into physical sciences and other related frontier fields, and strive for top-notch achievements in the discovery of new high temperature superconductors, unconventional superconductivity mechanism, core technologies of quantum computing, and super-fast regulation of properties.

The Facility covers an area of about 130 mu, with a building area of 48,000 square meters. Its construction started in Sept. 2017 and will be put into operation in 2022.
