Combining the highest steady magnetic fields with the best resolution for measuring length changes clearly pushes the frontiers of experimental physics. The design of a miniaturized capacitance dilatometer that can be used in the 33 T magnet of the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory allows magnetostriction measurements with unprecedented resolution. We present the first investigation of the forced magnetostriction of samarium metal.
