The purpose of this paper is to summarize some of the research activities recently performed at the Laboratorium voor Hoge Magneetvelden at the University of Nijmegen The scope here and unifying aspect is magnetically induced phase transitions. Here we summarize transitions in the settling velocity of paramagnetic aggregates, suppression of spin fluctuations in UAl2, the phase diagram of a ferroelectric chiral smectic liquid crystal near the Lifshitz point and the transition from 3D to 2D conduction in a GaAs FET. In no way does this represent a complete review of transitioi but rather a summary of phase transitions observed at the magnet laboratory during the past year.
