On the road toward a groundbreaking all-superconducting magnet, the MagLab successfully tests a prototype that is already in the record books.
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.
An overpressure furnace capable of developing high current density in significant-sized coils (up to 15 cm diameter and 50 cm long) has been brought into commission. The furnace is enabling reaction of solenoids made out of Bi-2212 destined for tests of NMR quality magnets at proton frequencies greater than 1 GHz.
To get millions of watts of electricity into our magnets, we need a couple of these.
The seven-year collaboration with the Helmholtz Zentrum Berlin resulted in a 26 T magnet for neutron scattering. This magnet is very similar to the FSU/NSF series-connected hybrid magnet and suggests that the FSU magnet will also be successful, thereby enabling new science on two continents with two very different sets of experimental techniques.
A unique magnet developed by the MagLab and Germany's Helmholtz Centre Berlin has reached a new world record for a neutron scattering magnet.
Global partnership is an exciting first step.
The MagLab and the Bruker Corporation have installed the world’s first 21 tesla magnet for Fourier Transform Ion Cyclotron Resonance (FT-ICR) mass spectrometry.
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.
