The Series Connected Hybrid magnet that is under fabrication at the NHMFL will utilize current leads containing high temperature superconductor to deliver 20 kA with low heat loads to the helium circuit. The leads have been successfully tested and are ready for installation into the magnet system.
The Magnet Lab has embarked on innovative projects to develop unique hybrid magnet systems. This is novel because a set of Florida-Bitter resistive coils (insert) and a set of superconducting cable-in-conduit conductor (CICC) coils (outsert) are driven in series with the same power supply, rather than independently.
To get millions of watts of electricity into our magnets, we need a couple of these.
Homogeneous magnets make data clearer for scientists. The MagLab has some of the most homogeneous magnets in the world.
MagLab engineers are building two cable-in-conduit superconducting coils for hybrid magnets, each with a resistive inner coil and a superconducting outer coil.
The MagLab has successfully completed construction of the cold-mass of a series-connected hybrid magnet for the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin.
Federal grant to fund new tools for biology research in high magnetic fields
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — MagLab engineers and visiting Berlin scientists are celebrating a major accomplishment as they prepare to ship a critical section of a new record-breaking magnet to Germany.
Combining tremendous strength with a high-quality field, the MagLab’s newest instrument promises big advances in interdisciplinary research.
The MagLab has delivered the resistive insert coils for the 25-Tesla Series Connected Hybrid Magnet for the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin. This magnet system includes a unique conical warm bore with 30 degree opening angle and will be used for neutron-scattering experiments and an unprecedented 25T central field. This constitutes a 47% increase in magnetic field available for these experiments while also providing an increase in solid-angle.
