Recent measurements of superconducting tapes in the MagLab's 45-tesla hybrid magnet shows that the power function dependence of current on magnetic field remains valid up to 45T in liquid helium, while for magnetic field in the plane of the tape conductor, almost no magnetic field dependence is observed. Thus design of ultra-high-field magnets capable of reaching 50T and higher is feasible using the latest high-critical current density REBCO tape.
MagLab user Philip Moll of the Max Plank Institute for Chemical Physics of Solids in Dresden, Germany, is the winner of the 2018 Nicholas Kurti Science Prize for Europe.
Sponsored by Oxford Instruments NanoScience, the prize promotes the novel work of young scientists working in the fields of low temperatures and/or high magnetic fields in Europe. Moll, a user in the lab's DC Field Facility, was recognized for leading the development of novel micro-structuring techniques, allowing the fabrication of bespoke devices and experiments from complex quantum materials, and thereby enabling entirely new classes of low temperature and high magnetic field measurements.
