Magnet Projects

In addition to working on magnet projects for the lab, MS&T cooperates with industry and other laboratories on a variety of magnet technology projects, including CICC, resistive, series connected hybrid and YBCO magnets. These projects cover the range of analysis, design, materials, component development and testing, coil fabrication, cryogenics, system integration and testing.

Platypus Project

A high-field and high-homogeneity demonstration magnet using Bi-2212 round wire: A first mammal in the age of NMR dinosaurs.

20 Tesla MRI Magnet: Ekosi Tesla

In 2013, an international team including the MagLab initiated Ekosi Tesla: the pursuit of 20 tesla human MRI (ekosi is Greek for 20).

41.5-Tesla Resistive Magnet

The MagLab has designed, built and tested a 41 tesla resistive magnet, the strongest in the world.

45 Tesla Hybrid Magnet for Nijmegen

The MagLab is playing a key role in the design and construction of a new 45 tesla hybrid magnet to be located at the High Field Magnet Lab at Radboud University in Nijmegen, The Netherlands.

32 Tesla All-Superconducting Magnet

Successfully tested in 2017, this magnet is the world's most powerful superconducting magnet — by a long shot.

Series Connected Hybrid for the Magnet Lab

In November 2016, the MagLab successfully tested a 36 tesla series connected hybrid (SCH) magnet that breaks the record for field homogeneity for a high-field magnet, will enable new science with a magnetic field that is both very high and very stable, and will operate much more cheaply than comparable magnets.

Series Connected Hybrid, HZB

In 2014, MagLab completed the world's strongest magnet for neutron scattering for the Helmholtz Centre Berlin (HZB).

100 Tesla Multi-Shot Magnet

The Pulsed Field Facility has the world’s only scientific program that has delivered scientific results in non-destructive magnetic fields up to and exceeding 100 tesla.

25 Tesla, 32 mm Split Helix Magnet (Cell 5)

The Split-Florida Helix (SFH) magnet is the first modern powered magnet optimized for advanced optical spectroscopy techniques requiring wide, free-space access to samples.

60 Tesla Controlled Waveform Magnet

This magnet is currently a world-unique capability that allows the user to specify the magnetic field profile optimized for the investigation of physics in very high magnetic fields. 

900 MHz 105 mm NMR Magnet

At 21.1 tesla, this is the strongest MRI scanner in the world for small animals. It is located in the MagLab's Tallahassee headquarters.

45 Tesla, 32 mm Bore Hybrid Magnet (Cell 15)

The lab’s flagship magnet, the 45 tesla hybrid is composed of a 33.5 tesla resistive magnet nested in an 11.5 tesla outsert.
